Re: Help ID'ing This Lid Please.

Seen supplied with dutch ovens and pans with wooden handles marked or labeled "Country House by Krischer" and Taiwan. Also with pieces marked simply "Made in Korea". In both cases, pan rims have a...

Re: Question About Lodge.

1987-1993 only the 14 had an assist handle. After that, the 8, 10, 12 and 14 did. No info on when marking the handle started, although catalogs don't seem to conclusively show that until about after...

Re: Cast Iron from Smith Bros Hardware in Columbus Ohio

I'm not familiar with any CI cookware with their markings. As a hardware distributor, they likely sold either brand name pans or the unmarked versions made by those brands for sale in market channels...

Re: Help ID'ing These Pans Please.

I don't recall ever seeing the screwhead device used on pans from BSR's early automation period, beginning the mid-1950s, so I would assume those that do are from the inception of the DISA machines...

Re: Help ID'ing These Pans Please.

Another resource places the ones with 2 QT on the top of the handle as pre- mid-1960s and those marked like yours after that. Since some so-marked are seen with the BSR quality control "screwhead",...

Re: Help ID'ing These Pans Please.

It's actually called a stew pan. Looks like a BSR. Or Lodge. BSR's changed over time and I can never keep them straight.

The scalloped heat ring I would guess 1930s-40s. Cooking would depend on...

Re: Help ID'ing These Pans Please.

The crescent moons heat ring is a Lodge. Never seen them in catalogs, though, nor any hammered Lodge for that matter, either. I'd say your assumptions about the 2nd and 3rd (Birdsboro) are correct.

Re: Antique Phonies

The skillet appears legit, see BB pg. 41. The cornstick is bogus, though.

Re: Is This Legit?

Appears to just have been a way to keep the halves from becoming accidentally (or intentionally?) separated. Like on the store shelf.

Re: ID ON THIS 11 3/4 Inch Skillet

Late unmarked Wagner. Could also have been sold labeled "Griswold Early American".

Re: Original Legs

As I understand it, the D-shaped legs and the shape of the handle attachments are indicative of a particular era, but I personally haven't gone down the rabbit hole on CI earlier than about mid-19th...

Re: Original Legs

It's called a sprue mark, but serves the same function.

Re: Original Legs

Welding cast iron isn't easy, nor subtle in appearance when it is seen done. Extra iron where the bases of the legs meet the pot serves as reinforcement of a potential stress point. It looks normal...

Re: 2 Pots and a Lid

Small raised letters on the undersides of Lodge pieces up through the 1940s indicate the foundryman who made the sand mold and cast the piece. On the DO handle, it's probably not a 4.

Re: Camp Oven Lid?

Not going to be easy to find, nor cheap if you do happen to. Might be able to find a lid from another maker that happens to fit, so it could at least be used.

Re: 2 Pots and a Lid

I don't remember Lodge lids ever having Made In USA inscribed in them. No molder's mark would place it 1950s or after.

The DO is a Lodge, missing its bail handle. That's an assist handle not a...

Re: Lid Identification

Two pattern letters usually meant there was a need for more than 27 working patterns (A-Z plus no letter). All BSR lids have spout cover ears because their dutch ovens had a pour spout and it was...

Re: All New Cast Iron

Only at an extremely premium price.

Re: Fluting Iron

Might be a good candidate for using mineral oil, since it's not a culinary implement. See: http://www.castironcollector.com/seasoning.php#display I'd skip the 500 part.

Re: Griswold Number 19 Heart and Star Waffle Iron.

eBay sold listings show that more common #18s are worth at least that much or more. A #19 went for over $1000 two months ago, with 27 bidders.

Re: Wapak DOs

2606 is Griswold's p/n for a #6 DO cover (no surprise there). #6 is the smallest anyone made that I'm aware of.
