Default Re: Tiny Spider Skillet

I've been meaning to post these to the "salesman's sample?" discussion. The impression looks to me like the Virginia Metalcrafters mark, tho this one is bigger than my Deep Fat Kettle (with 3 feet). (Preview shows the pictures rotated - sorry, cannot seem to fix.)
"Begun by William J. Loth as the Waynesboro Stove Company, it was born at a time when there were many regional iron foundries and stove makers. As electric appliances took over, most of these companies shut down, unable to adapt. However, Virginia Metalcrafters figured out a way to survive. In 1936, it became Virginia Metalcrafters, selling unique household items to that new, sensational American tourist attraction, Colonial Williamsburg."
