Finally some CI!
 
As I've mentioned before, CI is a bit hard to come by near me, but my dear friend cleaned out her storage locker in Shell Beach CA and sent me this stuff. She got it from an old lady she knew years and years ago. Toy skillet w label, CI bear bank, juicer, etc. Love it!!!

Nice haul. If you get tired of Santa, he always has a place here with me.

Tony, I like that bear bank. I found a little info on this site. It looks to be about 100 years old. That juicer is cool too, I don't often see them with the insert. That is a nice bunch of iron.

Thanks Scott. I'll have to wait until Christmas to make my first Santa cake. I'll let you know how it turns out.
Bonnie, thanks for the info on the bear bank. I love this piece, and so does my daughter. I'll have to start filling it with valuable coins for her inheritance. Oh, and she'll get my CI too.

TonyR, Do you have a photo of the other end of the muffin pan? Are there any other marks on it?

That is a No 10 Popover, open frame style muffin pan. Griswold had a Variation #6 that had the No 01 the rest were No 10. Griswold did not have the B, as yours does. It makes me think that it was a copy from Wagner, but I have been on thin ice before.

I have the same one without the B. mine is the Griswold Variation #6, with a crack. It was free.

Hi Jeffrey,
I figured it was a recast or copy, but I have no idea on ID.
No mark on the other end. The tops of those handles are pretty smooth so I don't know if they had been changed in the casting.
Maybe Doug knows.

Give me a little time, I will measure mine and tell you where to measure yours. If yours is a recast then it will be a little smaller than the Griswold one that I have.

Yours is still a very nice piece.

Here is my Griswold #10 Popover, not in the best of shape, but it was free.

Measure yours to see if yours is smaller

Smaller. Mine is 7 7/16 x 10 5/16, so I guess it's a recast. But it's awesome and it cleaned up really nicely.

Good for you. Mine has pitting, cracks and some plastic melted on it. Just wall art.
