    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

    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.

    The maker of this skillet s a mystery to cast iron enthusiasts but the consensus is that it was made at a smaller foundry in the eastern part of the USA over 100 years ago. They tiny pour spouts are similar to those seen on some of the southern mystery skillets, and the arced fancy handle design reminiscent of both Martin Stove & Range and G.F. Filley. Still, no matter who made them, they are very nice skillets. This one features a inset heat ring, bottom gate, and the large raised lettter “N” on the bottom. Cooking surface shows casting voids, wear and tool marks from years of use. Still it’s mostly very good. Should only improve with use but this would be a great wall hanger. A real piece of history.

    Marked: “N”

    10” 1/4 diameter

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

    No cracks or chips. Fair bit of 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.

    This is a VERY unusual piece – and I suspect a piece like this was the inspiration for BSR when they created their fish fryers. This is perhaps the deepest long pan I’ve ever run across that was not part of the BSR line. Double gated on the bottom with squared handles and almost 2” deep. Cooking surface is remarkably good for such and old piece – but there are pouring flaws and imperfections – similar to most long pans of this age. Still as I’ve never run across another like this – it’s quite forgivable. Bottom has sulfur pitting from use over a wood stove.

    21” 7/8 (handle to handle) x 9” 1/8. Interior well is 18” x 8” and about 1” 3/4 deep

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

    No cracks or chips. Sits on its gate mark so wobbles when tested on a sheet of glass. Cooking surface is very good.

    Not a lot to really say about this old ice chopper – mainly because I don’t know much. Meant for chopping bits off of block ice. Features a steel blade and a cast iron handle that was clearly poured around the rear part of the steel blade. Blade has four sharpened tines. I’m sure it could be used for other purposes.

    Totally unmarked.

    7” long.

    Cleaned via lye method, hand buffed and lightly oiled. This has not been oven seasoned as the blade would likely shed seasoning if used on ice as intended.

    No cracks, chips.

    $30 shipped (get a $7 shipping rebate if ordered with a larger piece that includes shipping)
