Default Interesting Griswold

Found this today at an antique mall. They wanted $40 for it. I passes because I didn't know if it was worth it. The back looks like an unmarked Wagner, I'm guessing it is from the period when Wagner was making Griswolds.

Yes, very early on after the acquisition, hence the lack of "Made In USA".

You're correct---made by Wagner.

I'm guessing the label and the skillet just recently met. Strong smell, good pass.

There is enough empirical evidence to support unmarked pieces made in the Ohio plant after the Griswold acquisition having been sold as both Wagner and Griswold via that very mechanism, paper labels. Doesn't make them or pieces marked Griswold from the same plant truly Griswold in the eye of collectors, though.

Makes me wonder how many of my unmarked Wagners are really Griswolds!

The label was glued in pretty tight and looked authentic.

That's exactly what I thought when I saw it.

If they were made in Ohio, wouldn't that be how many unmarked Griswolds are really Wagners??

I think faking labels like that would be pretty hard. I'd want to sniff at it in person before deciding for sure, but my antiquer's instincts say it's authentic.
