    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.

    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.
