Doug, I see this discussion a lot. While it is true that the Griswold family owned the factory and the ERIE pieces were made in the same factory as the Griswold marked ones, I still see it as being true that they were "pre-griswold" in the sense that they were "before" the Griswold logo. Semantics I guess.
