I have four CHF pieces, including a #9 deep skillet, and that handle does not match any of them. Not to say you don't have a CHF piece- mine are all marked with the typical "8x" designation on the bottom, so they may not match simply be from being later patterns.

Those so-marked are the CHF hammered pieces, which bear no resemblance to either the non-hammered CHF or Favorite.

Were the non hammered CHF pieces using or based on the Favorite patterns, whereas the hammered pieces were developed from the ground up by the CHF?

There don't seem to be any hammered known-Favorite Piqua pieces, marked or otherwise. Since they were out of business (and their patterns and tooling were acquired by CHF) before the time generally accepted as the period of hammered popularity, it would seem the hammered ware was CHF's doing.

CHF made some unhammered pieces probably in the late 20s to early 30s before acquiring the old Favorite patterns. They are marked "Sani-Ware" and are often porcelainized and also have a very distinctive and pleasing diamond shaped handle.

Had a short in one of the under water lights and that chlorine conductor worked just fine
