Happy finds and a little help identifying
 
Went back to a local antique mall I go to sometimes. I bought the first pieces there recently. Much more and better stuff than before.

I bought a Wagner Ware P/N 1339 Turks Head Muffin Pan for a fraction of value in the BB.

The other piece I bought was what looks like a chrome or nickel plated cast iron WWSO Krusty Korn Kob pan P/N 456 except it's light like aluminum. I think it's a senior but am not sure.

The same dealer had the following:
R&E MFG Co. gem pan with the Waterman patent date.

Is $25 a good price for this?

Also, there was New England Style pan labeled 1 or 11 Barstow Stove Company Prov. R. I. Does anyone have an idea of a good price for that? Was also about $25.

Lastly, the was a small griddle/sad iron heater that couldn't have been longer than 18". It was labeled B.S. No. 2. Gate mark on the bottom. I think it was $30. Is my assumption correct that this is a marked early BSR piece? What would be a good price?

Nice find. Those don't come up too often.

456 would be the senior aluminum c/n. Cleaning it won't be fun; you don't want to use electro or lye on aluminum. Have a SCO?

I have that same pan, and think I gave $20 plus shipping, so...

Nice markings, unusual piece. $25 seems about top end but OK.

Not like any BSR I've seen. My guess, looking at the #11 roll pan, is that the BS stands for Barstow Stove.

I an also guessing Barstow Stove for the long pan and have never seen one like it. Nice piece Lee.

Thanks, Doug and Steve.

I guess I should be pretty happy with $20 on the Turks Head pan! It looks like the back of it it black enamel. It's think because I can see small bits of iron in places where it's rubbed against other pieces. If it's original, obviously I don't want to risk damaging it. Is this more likely someone's idea of making it a nice display piece? It's not on the top.

Senior Aluminum: yes, I have an SCO. Perhaps I should sell as is, or possibly after the SCO? Any idea what I could likely sell it for? It is a little warped but then it was only $5.

Sounds like a reasonable price then on the R&E. Two of their other pans are for sale on eBay currently but I didn't see any solds.

I didn't think to compare the NES pan to the griddle/sad iron heater. I think you guys are right; the fonts of the B and S look the same on the two pieces. Any idea of value?

Sounds like I should return and get at least the long pan and the R&E, if not the Barstow Stove NES pan.

I was seduced. I returned and bought the Barstow Stove No. 2 small griddle/sad iron heater as well as the Russell and Erwin gem pan. The R&E also has the black enamelish paint on the back so I suspect it was someones way of displaying. It's not on the very clean Barstow gem pan which I may look at again next week.

I come across a lot of the gem pans that are painted, electrolysis takes it right off. Those sad iron holders are often pressed into service as fish fryers of griddles, I know of one similar I plan to grab tomorrow.

Lye will usually take paint off, too. I was happy to find a nickel plated lifter handle under the black one I bought cheap.

I continue to be seduced. I bought the Barstow Stove gem pan too. I felt like I might have a difficult time getting more of their pieces. With that feeling, I'll probably run into a lot of them since they were relatively local.

Wonder if I can find the old foundry in Providence. There has been some of their ephemera listed on eBay recently.

I joined today so I can finally reply to this thread.

A few weeks ago, I also found the Wagner 1339 in a local antique mall for $20. I passed on it because I didn't know what I'd make with it. Later on, I tried looking for one on ebay to get an idea what it was going for. Finding none there, I Googled "Wagner 1339" and one of the links was this thread. Then I started kicking myself for passing on the one I had seen. I called the antique mall, put it on "hold", and picked it up the next day. A couple of treatments with oven cleaner later it looks pretty good.

I still don't know what to make with it.
