    Absolutely gorgeous – one of the prettiest exteriors on a piece of this type I have seen, and still quite usable too. This display piece this one should make your short list. Marked 70 in balloon type script – which makes me think this is either a early Wagner, Favorite, or Vollrath piece (as Wagner used that script type and Vollrath used the sizing like that on their earlier pieces). As I’m not sure we’ll just call it unidentified. The interior is polished (often incorrectly called milled) which you don’t often see. Sadly there is some pitting on the interior but it’s shallow and it should be very usable. That said it’s so pretty I’d probably display it. Triangular legs and cow horn style bail attachments date it to 1860-1900. In any case she is just pretty.

    8” 1/2 diameter at the rim, Stands 8” 3/4 tall

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

    No cracks, chips. Exterior is gorgeous and has nothing but casting flaws. interior has broad shallow pits along parts of the bottom and walls – but it should be usable and it will only improve with use.

    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.

    SOLD AS FOUND

    I have to imagine this large ornate iron cross came from an old church somewhere. It is ornate with plant patterns on it, all resting on a clenched fist which is attached to an elaborate base. Traces of gold paint cover the cross itself, but this appears to be paint and not gilt. There is no name or markings I can find on this piece anywhere. Cross is attached to the base by an old hex bolt. I’d guess the piece to be from about 1920-1940 based on casting and the fastener.

    Stands (about) 23” tall and has a span of 14”

    Sold as found.

    No cracks or chips are evident.

    This is the smallest double griddle/sad iron heater I’ve come across. Made for use with an old wood stove It’s a very usable piece which would also look great as a display piece. The piece isn’t perfect, it has some casting flaws which adds some roughness to the cooking surface. Has a well about 5/8” deep so it can be used for poaching, roasting, or even frying. Side “wings” allowed it to sit in a wood stove without falling.

    Marked: Unmarked.

    17” 3/4 handle to handle, outer lip to outer lip 15” 3/4” x 7” 3/4 (at the wings), 5/8” deep. Inner cooking surface 14” x 5” 3/4

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

    No cracks or chips. Sits on it’s gate mark so it won’t sit flat on a sheet of glass. Cooking surface has minor tool marks and casting flaws. Should only improve with use.

    If this had not been in rough shape when we found it we would have left it alone and sold it as is, but due to condition it made sense to restore this piece in order to preserve it.  After restoration this is a piece that is museum quality and would be great displayed in a historical setting.

    A real collector piece this is a serious bit of old historical iron.  Made between 1820-1850 this piece is at least 160 years old and could be as old as 220 years old.  Designed for use over open fire this hanging skillet/kettle is bowl-like and cast using the flask casting method with a bottom gate.  Has a blacksmith wrought bail, and New England style ears.   Has three stub pads for stability for when set on a table. Not surprising due to the age (and casting method) there are some casting flaws and some light pitting on the piece.  While this piece can be used, and the flaws are fairly minor it really should be preserved as a display piece of historical interest.  Has a nice rim around the bow.

    Unmarked.

    10” 1/2 diameter (Excluding the ears)

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

    No cracks, chips. Not designed for stovetop use but for hanging.  Cooking surface has casting flaws and pitting.  While it could be used this one is best kept as a display piece, or non cooking piece for historical reasons.

    Unusual piece that was clearly made by a smaller foundry.  Made c. 1870-1880 (roughly 150 years old) it has a very large, off center 8 on the bottom which was clearly added to the sand of the mold, not the form from which the mold for casting was made.  While there are some casting flaws visible on the cooking surface this piece shows great detail and care in it’s casting.  Worth using as well as displaying.   A great example of smaller foundry work.  WIll be a great user.   This one has a little history and a lot of character.  Bottom shows pitting from use over a wood stove.  Inset heat ring.  Casting letter that appears to be  J is still visible.  Sits flat on heat ring.

    Marked:  Large “8” on underside maybe a tiny “J” as a mold mark as well.

    10” 3/8 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.  Decent cooking surface with some flea bite tool marks and casting flaws.  Should fill in as it gets some kitchen use.

    This appears to be a Favorite design, but as I can’t swear to it, we’ll call it an unmarked handled griddle, also called a round griddle.  As a user – i’s just perfect.  Great polishing marks, sits flat, glassy cooking surface.  Really an outstanding user 

    Marked: “8” on the bottom.

    9” 3/4 diameter

    No cracks chips or wobble when tested on a sheet of glass.  Cooking surface is glassy and smooth. Looks unused.

    No clue who actually made this skillet, it almost certainly was made by a smaller foundry between 100-150 years ago.  Has tiny pour spouts are similar to those seen on some of the southern mystery skillets.   Still, no matter who made them, they are very nice skillets.  This one features a inset heat ring, bottom gate, and the large raised letter “8T” on the bottom.   Cooking surface is nicely smoothed but that did not clear away all of the pouring flaws.    Still it’s quite good and very usable.  A real piece of history.  

    Marked: “8T” in raised letters/numbers 

    10” 5/8 diameter (excluding handle and ears)

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

    No cracks or chips.   Small wobble when tested on a sheet of glass.   Cooking surface is very usable but there are casting voids, wear, and tool marks but those should all improve with use.
