My New Find
 
I love this time of year Iím finding more stuff then ever. Or Iím just getting lucky. Went to the same flea market and found a Griswold #10 smooth bottom(LBL), a Wagner Ware S/O chicken fryer with lid, and a # 3 Wagner Ware S/O that the guy throw in for buying the other two. Tried to post pics but failed Iíll just try later.

Iíve been looking on online for a Wagner Ware chicken fryer. I donít see any with this lid. Is it original to this fryer? Do you think itís worth what I paid, $10?

I'd have bought the lid alone for 10 dollars.
Or any one of those pieces for that matter.

This style lid is from after the writing top lids and before glass lids.

No, the #8 is a Wagner Ware chicken fryer. The others are #10 Griswold, and a #3 Wagner Ware.

for some reason 10's seem to be 'hot' these days... I had been looking for a 10 smooth bottom large block and didn't find any 'in the wild' for a couple of years... and the ones that showed up on ebay were selling for $150 and up... even small logo #10's are selling for $75 - 100 or more... I don't understand why... so your 10 looks to be an excellent find.

I eventually found a rusty one with a fully marked lid on ebay with a buy it now price under $100.. so I have mine finally.

I donít own a size 11 through 13 skillet. I have several 10ís (not Griswold) and a couple of #14 Lodge. As far as practical use, a #14 seems too large for a standard stove eye. Iím not even sure if anything larger than a #10 will heat and cook evenly? I hope to have a #12 in the future and would like to see how it looks sitting on my stove and see how it works. With that being said a #10 would seem to be a popular size from a users standpoint.
