Default Found a Gate Marked #7 Single Spout.....

I thought some here may enjoy seeing this fresh desert pick.
My bride gave $10.00. She already loves it. Thin walls, light weight,
big spout. Almost (slightest wobble...handle towards 2400hrs.) sits
perfectly flat. Seasoning appreciation to proceed after lye soak. I think
we got a good one.

I have seen this handle here before... so, there are other related
survivors.

Good score! I have grown fond of gate marked, single spout, and fancy handled pans. Should make an excellent user and a good conversation piece as well.

Thanks Russell ! Here is a twin (actually a couple) from here, 6 months ago. I think mine
will be a common user.

Nice find. Who made the stove that it's on? Do you use it?

GTurner...

Thanks.

If this sports the original face plate the cook stove is a Geneva
8/16 "(foundry in Geneva, New York). . And yes , we use it... here
is a pictorial of the rehabilitation with some photos of "in use" (after
rehab). (apologies for all the photos). I found this out here in the
desert. The rehab process is not for the faint of heart as enthusiasm
for the project runs out well before the labor does. And, it is labor
intensive. The end result is worthwhile. Sometimes the bride and I
sit around it with our favorite beverages and just watch the stars
(like a campfire).

(the Lady I bought it from wanted to buy it back after rehab.
I declined).

Worts and all... we really appreciate the skill level of the foundry
workers from back in the late 1800's.... a survivor. Looking forward
to uniting it with the #7 fancy handle skillet !

late note...some of the pieces of the cook stove are gate marked.

Outright BEAUTIFUL! I can tell it was a daunting task, but well worth it. You should have sold it back to her for 12x what you paid for it or 3x is value, whichever is greater. She wouldn't have bought it anyway.

GTurner thanks !

If I had a do-over I would have selected one in a bit better
starting condition. They are out there.

(here is one I did from the Martin Stove and Range Co. Foundry ....
"PERFECTION" seemed appropriate).

So, clean-up completed. Obvious acne on the cook surface
but, I believe will fill with seasoning. We will season as we go...
For the photo op after lye bath, scrub, wash and heat dry the
skillet was given a rub with crisco.

Just some thoughts... I have passed over these in the past...I
won't again. The handle seems a bit "smallish" in my big paw...
but, when compared with others, same size... just a smaller
overall framework (i.e. fancy handle). Thoughts on "rust" ... the
surface oxidation on this one seems to have served as a "protection".
Just surface "rust dust" not erosion caliber rust.... perhaps a
benefit of being a desert dweller.

On a 1-10 beauty scale...the judges give a 5/10...but, on the
"way-cool" scale 10/10.

The best part...when handed to the bride...her response, "gorgeous".

btw... incorrect in original posting ....sits flat, no wobble, no spin.

Charles,

Let me get first in line to make storage space available should you need to put a few stoves somewhere.

That skillet is awesome. With all the rust, did you use an etank or vinegar?

Congrats.

P.S. Those biscuits looked very good. When are you inviting us over?

Thanks Wally ! ....

Those biscuits are good...I like em' smothered with white gravy !

The "Perfection" had much better bones than the "Geneva"... I did
that one for a co-worker.

This skillet is one of the good ones.... two days in the lye tank. Goop
just fell off... The rust looked worse then it was... more surface then
imbedded. Light wire brushing...(very light). Scrubber pad. Easy-peasy.
Now I'm looking for more of these fancy handled unmarked skillets...
good stuff. Thanks again.

Charles
