Probably earlier than that Bonnie, here's a newspaper article that speaks of the mini WIR comfort range skillets being given out in 1895 at the Toronto Exhibition. Need to scroll down a little, left column, to the "Wrought Iron Range" heading.

Rob, I believe this is one of the skillets that article is referring to. I wouldn't really consider that cookware. Many of the foundries used these little advertising ashtrays. I could be wrong however but the article does say little skillet.

Well, this article specifically mentions cookware laid out for the ladies in 1895... Look down a little on the left to Wrought Iron Ranges.

Wrought Iron Range was founded in 1864, 30 years before the exhibition - I would imagine there's cookware made before the 1890's?

Also Bonnie, it mentioned that the ladies were flocking to the exhibit. I don't believe they would have beat a path to their door for ashtrays but you never know.

Apparently someone reported my video to YouTube of violating it's terms of service and it was taken down.

I used no music, no content owned by anyone else, etc etc... Just me filming my own skillet and stating that it was a WIRCo skillet and it wobbled and spun like a top. WTF?!

Obviously you didn't pay enough royalties to the YouTube gods to make your video available. I hear Google is offering free legal help to youtube users. See what happens when your ego gets bigger than your head, I think you chose the right emoticon.
