Un Marked Square Pan
Picked up a square pan. looks old thin wall casting. The only marking is a letter R at the root of the handle on the bottom. Will get some pictures when it is out of the tank.

Here is the picture. The pan is about 9 inches square. It is a thin wall casting. I expected it to say Wagner under the crud. I think I have seen this font R on other Wagner's.

Looks to be Lodge.

Re: Un Marked Square Pan
Kyle wish it had more marks. Do you think it is old because of the thin casting?

Just a guess, but it may be an Import.....not sure...I have a newer Lodge, and its different, but as for old Lodge, Im of no help.

I think it is from around the 50's 0r 60's, but I am not too sure. I have owned a few and the older ones seem to be smoother in my experience. I don't think it is an import, but I have been wrong before.

Re: Un Marked Square Pan
Gentlemen, I would think it is a older Lodge. I have several older Lodge square pans and several more that are grill pans. These lack the modern Lodge trade mark so I know they are older. I say Lodge because I have never seen a square pan that was not a Lodge. Might be a different manufacture but if so it would be really rare and unknown, so probably Lodge.

Re: Un Marked Square Pan
David do your old Lodge pans have an "R" on the bottom of the handle?

Re: Un Marked Square Pan
Need a pic of entire bottom including handle. Also what is top width, top length including handle and overall depth?
