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: Unmarked Square Pan Id

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.

Modern castings post-mid-20th century are the product of automated molding processes. The fine grained sand and mold finishing products of hand-poured castings...

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.

Re: Lodge Arc Logo #12

#12 skillets appear in Lodge catalog listings going back to the early 1900s. That they made so few (arc logo) that only a couple dozen survive would seem implausible.

Re: Lodge Arc Logo #12

The notion of rarity is probably more based on the fact that it's a marked Lodge than it being a #12. Prior to 1987, they only marked skillets (using the arc logo) between ~ 1910 and 1930. No recents...

Re: Lid Identification

Other search results for "eclipse" here will return a few more threads and also show pieces that have a similar pattern.

Re: Help Identify Please

Only a part of the complete item, which would have included a spindle stand. Made to hold small parts like nails for a shoemaker.

Pointless marks in patterns would probably not have been tolerated. Either quality control to identify which pattern made what pans, or perhaps shift identifiers. Since some are more faint than...
