    Half skillet with 3/4” tall walls #8 with heat ring and fancy handle. Some foundries might have called this one a round griddle or handled griddle but the very tall walls here are much more typical of the “half skillet” design. c. 1860-1880 (roughly 150 years old) Cooking surface shows beautiful polishing marks but has some scars and casting flaws typical of older pieces. Worth using as well as displaying. Should be an outstanding user. This one has a little history and a lot of character. Bottom shows pitting from use over a wood stove. Inset heat ring. There clearly was a mark on the bottom but it’s not readable any more.

    Marked: Marked with an 8 on the handle.

    10” 1/8 diameter (excluding handle, measured at top of lip)

    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. Very nice cooking surface with polishing marks and some tool marks. Should fill in as it gets some kitchen use.

    This is a museum quality piece. Just gorgeous. You could use it immediately (though we always recommend washing, or adding another coat of seasoning before use). I don’t see a sprue here or a bottom gate so I’m making the assumption that this is a later piece but it could actually be of European origin and much earlier. Pestle is barbell shaped and double ended. It was hand cast in two halves and has a well defined middle ring which was probably a stab at a more ergonomic design.. Casting quality is very high.

    Unmarked.

    4” 1/2 diameter (at top of lip), 5” tall. Pestle is 7” long.

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

    No cracks, chips.  Sits flat when tested on a sheet of glass.  Beautiful interior smoothness typical of this casting..

    This is an absolutely gorgeous mortar and pestle. You could use it immediately (though we always recommend washing, or adding another coat of seasoning before use), this is a later piece and I suspect it was made in the late 19th to early 20th century. It came out a apothecary – early drug maker shop in New Jersey along with two others.

    3” 3/4 diameter (at top of lip), 4” tall. Pestle is 6” long.

    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. Beautiful interior shape with almost no wear..

    Nobody is sure who made these pieces, some people say Lodge/Blacklock, some people say Wagner, still others say Griswold (based on the ears) or an unknown foundry. I personally lean towards these being made by Wagner (as I’ve found marked Wagner pieces with a similar star), but no one doubts it’s age. This is an old piece. It’s also a very useful and convenient shape for use – just ideal for soup, chili, stew or even making pasta. Cooking surface is not stone polished, but rougher to the touch. Some casting flaws, and tool marks are present.

    Markings: There is a ~ 3/4” star on the underside of both the body and the lid. The lid also has the number “9” or possibly “6” near the inner edge. The body has the number “9” or possibly again a “6” on the top of one of the bail ears.

    Size: 10” diameter, 6” 1/2 tall.

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

    No cracks, chips. Small wobble when tested on a sheet of glass. Cooking surface is very good but there are some casting flaws, and too marks, but it should smooth out beautifully into a great user.

Partially restored – but seasoned.

    We’ve seen other pieces like this under the Swain name and I wonder if this one was cast by them for a private client as it is almost identical but with a different name on it. It will be a great display piece, but it could easily still be used. Made between 1890-1910
    and almost certainly English in origin (Swain was an English foundry). Basically this a hanging skillet with a hand peened ring for hanging and a single triangular pour spout. Steel bail is attached via peans to the pan itself. Cooking surface is typical of these hanging skillets and has some texture. Has three short stub legs on the bottom. It is only partially restored as while we were cleaning it we found a hairline crack in the wall – so w e just brought it up to usable shape and will sell it cheap.

    Bottom is marked “13” then has three letters in a triangular logo that seem to say “JDB”

    13” diameter ~ 1” 3/4 deep.

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

    Has a crack as mentioned above.

    Collector Grade! Flip Flop waffle iron by an uncertain foundry. Some people say this design was made by Atlanta Stove Works, but as it is unmarked I cannot say for sure. I have to say I love this piece – especially due to the diamond shape pattern which comes out on your waffle. In great shape with the correct handled base. Appears to have been sprue poured and vented on the side. Really a nice collector piece and a great user too.

    Marked: “7-8” in raised letters on one paddle. Base is unmarked.

    Paddles are 6” 3/4 diameter (excluding ears and hinge), base is 8” 1/8 diameter

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

    No cracks, chips. Iron on cooking surface is in amazing shape and should only improve with use.

    This is a mystery piece. Looks identical to no notch Lodge and is believed to have been concurrent with the no notch Lodge c. 1910-1930. I personally wonder if they were a made by Lodge as a economy brand, or for a specific retailer. The only real difference save for the “P 1” or “P 2” marking on the piece seems to be that the sizes are all a little bit smaller. Cooking surface is very good – but it isn’t quite glassy. it should get there but there are some casting flaws and tool marks.
    
Marked: with a raised number “8” in on the top of the handle as well as a “P 1”. The underside is totally unmarked.

    10” Diameter excluding spouts.

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

    No cracks or chips. Wobbles when tested on a sheet of glass. Cooking surface is very good but not quite glassy but should get there with a little bit of use.

    If there ever were any markings on this Chistmas tree holder I can’t find them. I can’t even tell you how old it is – although it appears to be sprue poured. I’d guess it was made in the 1920s. Nice and heavy and should hold a good sized tree. Has a 6” diameter with adjustable screws to adjust to any size tree,
