    Fascinating old collector piece that can still be used. This is the largest handled griddle we’ve come across. this was made in a 2 part mold as you can clearly see where the hollowed out handle was added to the mold before casting. A great example of smaller foundry work. This one has a little history and a lot of character. Griddle features a very large gate, large raised markings and an outset heat ring. Bottom shows some pinpoint pitting consistent with wood stove use. Cooking surface is surprisingly flat but shows pouring flaws and some extremely shallow pitting that in no way should effect use. This is a piece for anyone who loves the really old iron.

    Marked: “MC 8” on the bottom

    12.5 inch diameter

    Cleaned via lye method, hand buffed and seasoned with 3 layers of non-GMO canola oil.

    No cracks, chips. Wobbles on the 3-9 axis when tested on a sheet of glass. primitive cooking surface with some casting flaws and scars from moisture, age and use. Should only improve

    This is a very interesting old griddle. Almost certainly made between 1840, as it has a heat ring for a wood stove, and the end of the Civil War (when wire bails took over for hand wrought iron bails). It is marked #8 but has a 13.5 inch diameter and a heat ring that is 12” in diameter. Has New England style ears. Crudely cast – almost certainly small foundry workable shape. Has a large wide gate, pouring flaws and sand inclusions in the iron. Face was lightly stone polished by the foundry, but not enough to leave polishing marks – while the rear shows more of the flaws and inclusions from the sand mold. Marked with a raised 8 which is 1/2 inch high. Heat ring has some breaks in it which I suspect were due to mold issues rather than chipping of the ring (due to the way that iron chips) but they add a lot of character to this piece.

    Marked: Has a raised number 8 about 1/2” high.

    13” 1/2 diameter (excluding ears)

    Cleaned via lye method, hand buffed and seasoned with 3 layers of non-GMO canola oil

    No cracks, and I don’ t think the heat ring is chipped but rather shows casting issues.. Whisper of wobble when tested on a sheet of glass (off by less than the thickness of a sheet of paper). Cooking surface is full of small flaws – mostly from pouring but nothing that would stop this from being a great pizza pan. Will only improve with use.

    I’m not sure who actually made this – some believe it was made by Lodge, but I can’t attest to anything except that it’s a older, quality piece that is very well cast – and very heavy. It’s totally unmarked but the quality is excellent. This would be great display piece or it could be used. Typically pans like this were used for molding head cheese but it could be used for many other things.

    Unmarked.

    8” 3/8 excluding handles.

    Cleaned via lye method, hand buffed and seasoned with 3 layers of non-GMO canola oil.

    No cracks, chips, or wobble when tested on piece of glass (while face down). Slightly roughened cooking surface typical of pieces that could not be stone polished. Should only improve with use.

    Bakestone or baking sheet of the type used in the British Isles pre 1900 and called Welsh or Irish bakestones. While this one sport a handle that looks very modern it is clearly a center poured piece – and pouring flaws and traces of a bottom gate or even a sprue can be seen on the face and bottom (though to be fair they are hard to differentiate as the foundry clearly tried to clean up the flash on this piece). For that reason I’m very hesitant to date it definitively. This is far too large to be a comal, and it is a VERY thick heavy pieces of iron for heat retention for development of a nice crust, just like a pizza stone (and in fact I’d bet you could make an awesome pizza on this. I’d say this is pre WW II and probably earlier, but that is a guess based on design. Dead flat

    No Markings.

    12” 3/4 diameter excluding handle

    Cleaned using lye method, hand buffed and seasoned with 3 layers of non-GMO canola oil

    No cracks or chips. Dead flat on a sheet of glass. Cooking surface has some large pouring flaws, but they should not effect use.

    While I’m inclined to think this is a Griswold (as the dimensions are identical) it’s totally unmarked so,the truth is I’m not quite sure who made this pretty little gem pan. Very well cast. The “golf ball” gem pan features 12 hemi-spherical cups for baking, candy, chocolate, or soap making. Great for things like meatballs, mini loaves, etc. Open framed to increase heat circulation. Nicely finished piece fairly typical of these more delicate framed gem pans. Cups are not as polished skillets, and some casting flaws can be seen. There is some very minor pitting.

    Unmarked

    10” 1/2 diameter x 7” 1/8 ~ 1” tall.

    Cleaned via lye method, hand buffed and seasoned with 3 layers of non-GMO canola oil.

    No cracks, chips, or wobble when tested on a sheet of glass. Cooking surface is typical of gem pans.

    This is a very pretty piece that is just screaming to be put back to use with someone’s grill or broiler. Features the raised center bow type grill to allow juices to drip. When they do, you can pour them off, or use them to baste using the pour spout. This is a great piece which will be beautiful on the wall or when being used. Not quite perfect – as there is a hairline crack in one of the tines. Almost certainly American made by one of the older foundries.

    Marked: Unmarked.

    roughly 10” 1/2 diameter

    Cleaned via lye method, hand buffed and seasoned with 3 layers of non-GMO canola oil

    No chips, or notable flaws save for the hairline crack in one tine. Sits flat when tested on a sheet of glass. Small amount of tool and wear marks on the piece.

    This is a bit of a mystery piece – based on the fact that the piece is marked Japan in English we know it was made at the earliest in Japan’s Mejii era (as that is when Japan opened to the west). It has hallmarks of that era and may well be from the late Mejii, or slightly thereafter. This piece may have been one that sat as a lid upon a large jar, possibly a tea container, and which could be flipped over and the content moved into the lid for inspection or weighing. However it makes and excellent server. Thin and ornate. Has floral pattern around the entire outside and a lip similar to a stove eye lip. Piece has some degree of pitting but is an extraordinary piece.

    Marked: “Japan” on the bottom.

    upper diameter at lip is 9” 3/4, middle diameter at ring is just under 12”, stands roughly 3” tall and has an interior depth of between 2” 1/2-3”

    Cleaned via lye method, hand buffed and seasoned with 3 layers of non-GMO canola oil.

    No cracks, chips. Stands on three stubby legs. Cooking surface has some pitting. Honestly just a special piece of iron.

    No one knows which foundry really made these skillets, but they are widely believed to have been made in western NY or PA, as that seems to be the area where they are most commonly found. They are heavy, and have a heavy (large dimple) hammered pattern in the iron compared to those made by Griswold, Wagner, Lodge or Chicago Hardware. Certainly vintage going back until at least the 1950s from what we can tell.
    
This is a nicer piece from this foundry – well smoothed but has some very minor pouring flaws, but those only make this a bit more interesting. Sits dead flat, polished cooking surface. Pouring flawscan be seen bottom of the skillet. Will only improve with use.

    Marked: “5” on the top of the handle. A quartet of dimples on the underside of the handle is the only other marking.

    8” diameter

    Cleaned via lye method, hand buffed and seasoned with 3 layers of non-GMO canola oil.

    No cracks, chips or wobble when tested on a sheet of glass. Cooking surface is glassy to the touch. Will only get better.

    User piece. This is an old abelskiver (danish pancake or apple pancake) or egg poaching pan probably made in Europe. While the enamel on this was in very good shape it wasn’t perfect so we took steps to make this into a good user piece. The bottom has been japanned, and the top has been seasoned anywhere that bare iron could be seen. The results are pretty and it turned this (and it’s sister pan which is slightly larger) into very good user piece. Features 7 wells and a unique handle design meant to keep the handle cooler. Designed for wood stove use – pan was almost certainly made between 1880-1930. (NOTE we also have the #2 size version of this pan – search for number 2196)

    Unmarked

    8” 1/4 across excluding handle.

    Cleaned via lye method, hand buffed and seasoned with 3 layers of non-GMO canola oil.

    No cracks, or chips in the iron, but there are some in the enamel where the iron has been been seasoned over or japanned. Tiny whisper of wobble when tested on a sheet of glass. Nice cooking surface.
