yes, the dutch oven is a legitimate early ERIE dutch oven, most likely from the 1890's...

Re: Tecumseh Hollow Ware #8

I think the fact that they are both in/around Tecumseh michigan and both in the iron foundry kind of business makes it seem like they should be related... but I'm pretty sure the name of each comes...

Re: Dating an Early Victor?

victors were made very early... and the characteristics seem to mirror the early erie series.
