Help Identifying Unmarked #7 Cast Iron Skillet with Heat Ring
 
Hello all,

I would like some help to identify the following unmarked #7 cast iron skillet with a pointy handle. It has a heat ring below (no notches) and is a little smaller than a Griswold Small Block Logo #7 but its walls are thicker. The skillet is generally smooth on the inside, but there are some burrs near the top. Other than the number 7 on the handle, there are no other markings. Its walls are thicker than the Griswold so maybe it is just another taiwanese skillet, but I just want to make sure with the help of the experts.

your pics show everything but the bottom... and that might provide the most clues to identification... so far I'm stumped by the handle/hanging hole shape

I am very sorry about that. I just added two pictures of the bottom to the imgur page. Hope this helps.

To my eyes it looks like a BSR...

BSRs don't have pointed handles or numbers on tops of handles.

I also thought it was a BSR at first because of the ridge on the underside of the handle. In fact, the ridge below the handle was the only reason that I picked that skillet up, it was so full of greasy crust that I could only see its pointy handle with its ridge (not even the number nor the heat ring).

Anyway, at least I now know it is not a BSR. Thanks!

You may never know who made it, but it's different and I like it!

the top and bottom of that handle have me stumped... I've never seen one quite like it.

I just bought one this afternoon also. It has no marks what so ever. Not even a heat ring. Maybe its Chinese. :eek:
Not even a number.
