Default Glass Lid

Found this glass lid at a yard sale for 50 cents, It looks a lot like wagner lids I've seen. Did Wagner Ware make unmarked lids? It says C-8 Made In USA and fits many of my #8s.

Smile Re: Glass Lid

A few years ago when I became interested in cast iron, I pulled out my mother's old skillets. One of them was a Wagner Ware deep skillet or chicken fryer which I remembered was used to fry chicken for the family. I also remembered that when my mother broke the glass lid she was visibly upset about it. She passed away 12 years ago at the age of 93, but I decided that I should replace that lid. I determined that it needed a C-8 lid and I purchased one on ebay for around $25 including shipping. In the past few years I have purchased three more as bargains. First I found one at a rummage sale on a worn out crock pot with a 50 cent price tag so I left the crock pot and got the lid. Later I found one at a garage sale on light weight aluminum skillet marked $1.00. I told the lady I only wanted the lid and give her the dollar. Finally earlier this month I found a nice older Rival crock pot with a C-8 lid and gladly gave the seller the $5.00 it was priced. So, I now have four C-8 lids - one for the Wagner Chicken Fryer, two for my crock pots, and a spare in case I ever need it. These are great heavy lids and the basting ring inside works very well.

So, a friend got a Wagner 1891 D/O (I know, nothing special) that had a Pyrex glass lid. Having obtained a Wagner Sidney O D/O for myself (w/o a lid), I started looking for one. I came across what looked like an older Pyrex lid, so I started doing a little research, and found this website.

Using the number on my lid, I found out that it was made somewhere between 1926 & 1932. And my guess is that Wagner might not have made the lids that Doug posted about, but rather they had them made, possibly by Pyrex. But that's just a guess. But I saw lids that looked a lot like those posted above on this site. I haven't looked, but I'll bet those 4 digit numbers Doug posted might be found there.

And FWIW, doing "research" was how I found you guys. Just sayin'.
