Default Favorite Chicken Fryer

I belong to a club that has some cast iron, including this chicken fryer. After looking here; http://www.castironcollector.com/favorite.php It looks like it was made from 1935 to 1937. Is this correct?

As noted on the page referenced, Favorite Piqua Ware went out of business in 1935, and sold their cookware patterns to Chicago Hardware Foundry, who altered them to add their name. Concrete information as to how long CHF actually continued to produce hollowware is scarce, so the best we can say is 1935 or after.

So are there no records (or skillets) that show how they were marked after William C. Katker took over making Favorite hollowware, in 1937?
1937 was also the year my club was begun.

Katker did not make Favorite cookware, as that part of the business had been sold to CHF.

Quote:
1935 - Cookware line tooling and patterns sold to Chicago Hardware Foundry Co.
1937 - William C. Katker continues to operate remainder of the company as Favorite Manufacturing Co. making stoves, hollowware, and parts for the old Favorite Stove & Range Co. products at other local foundries.
