Default Re: Painted Care Bear Skillet

I went to an antique shop a few years ago and saw a griddle painted black and with some mushrooms and flowers. I asked the lady working at the time if they could do better, she told me that the painting made it worth more, so I told her that I intended to strip it off so it can be used on the kitchen stove and not the wall. She wined a bit but we came to a price. Then she tells me that she painted it, but it never sold. I kept my mouth shut. The paint kept the rust away.

I have purchased early hearth pots and kettles painted for decoration beside the fireplace, kept the rust away.
