Default Re: Looking for Info Hammered/plated Chicken Fryer

It is Lodge, likely early 1940s. Lodge handles are all over the place, from time period to time period and from size to size. The interior plating has worn off from use, a common scenario. A trip through a lye bath would probably brighten things up significantly, but at the expense of the established seasoning on the cooking surface. It sounds like you know its history and that using it as-is may not be of concern. Hard to tell from the photos if what's on the top of the lid is plating loss or something burnt on.
