Have you tried googling Wrought Iron Range Co?
Is this the paragraph you are talking about?

"Is there any way to date a WIRCo skillet"

Boy, you're leaving yourself wide open for a terrible joke, there!!

Seriously, I had no problem finding some stuff about the founder, Henry Harrison Culver, and a couple of eBay listings that claimed certain dates, but nothing authoritative.

David, I have one of the iron skillets and one of the steel skillets. I think the reason that you can't find info is because the iron ones were such a failure. Every one I have ever seen is a spinner, including mine. I don't think they are collectible so no one has really taken the time to gather any information. I will say that my steel skillet is one of the sturdiest steel skillets I have ever come across. Maybe you can find more info and share it with us.
