Default I Found This #7 Skillet at Goodwill

I bought this crusty old skillet from goodwill today. I couldn't find any marks that would tell me who made it or how old. The skillet is really light compared to my other skillet.

The standard answer on bottom-gated pans without manufacturer markings is ID not possible. A size number indicates intended for use on a wood stove, so that plus the handle style probably early to mid-1800s. A pan that shallow of that rimmed design would be called an "old style" handled griddle.

I, too, found this at a Goodwill. Doug, Roughly the same age? Would these be called a “griddle” rather than a skillet?

I have one very similar to yours but it is marked. It is made by Excelsior is St Louis. It's surface condition is rough though.

I would call it a griddle, but I am no expert.

Nothing good in my area. Cast iron, jewelry, and sterling silver is "cherry picked" before placed out for sale. Rusty new Lodge pans and rusty corn stick pans. Both showing evidence of owner neglect.
