The Cast Iron Collector - Information For The Cast Iron Cookware Enthusiast

Database of Foundries, Manufacturers,
Wholesalers, Jobbers, Retailers, & Brands

As you delve further into the hobby of collecting cast iron, you will continue to encounter unusual pieces the history of which may be unclear or unknown. While there are a few dozen manufacturers well-known to the collecting community, there were literally hundreds of lesser-known foundries and stoveworks producing cast metal cookware in North America in the 19th and 20th centuries.

Originally begun and compiled by Steve Stephens, this listing-- a more comprehensive database of antique and vintage cast iron hollow ware producers and sources-- may be of help with many of those more obscure pieces. Steve's annotations are included, and may be viewed by hovering your mouse pointer over the notepad icon.
