I just acquired a lovely antique skillet at a yardsale. I normally restore them to give as gifts, but this one caught my eye as very old. There were three that I purchased from a granny who said she had them for decades and that they were her grandparents.

The pictures tell more than I can, but there is an 8 on the handle, an x on the bottom, and gate marks (at least that is what I read online.)

Please let me know if you have any leads. I love learning the history!

I hope this works. Sorry. First time.

Looks like a recast made from what's come to be called a Southern mystery skillet. No maker determined for the original (nor the recaster).

Ha! That explains why it has too much metal in the middle of the pan on the bottom!
