Ok, this lid probably belonged to an old camp oven made by an unknown maker. What makes this piece so special is the interior. Take a look at the inside of this lid. See all those weird pieces? Those weird designs? That’s all the evidence you need to know that yes – some manufacturers, didn’t just pour molten metal into their molds, but actually threw bits of scrap into the space and filled around it with molten iron. That would have resulted in the need to melt less iron, and use less fuel, or find less high quality ore. Basically it saved money.
Not surprisingly not a lot of lids like this seem to have survived. They probably by in large weren’t as structurally sound. It also makes pieces like this kind of neat and well worth collecting.
Aside from the raised #8,and the interior gate mark there are no indications as to who might have made the piece.
We cleaned the piece with lye, and coated with four fresh coats of non-gmo canola oil.

This is a cool old cast iron and steel can opener c. 1890. This one isn’t a mystery like the last one was, but it’s just as cool. But this fish head type can opener features a marked blade saying: “Belmont” Pat Feb 11, 1890.
Haven’t been able to find out a lot about this company, but it’s a very pretty piece. Iron handle is 6” long, steel blade protrudes another 1/4” beyond that.
Sold as is, as this is a collector piece, but it can be restored if you so desire.
$50 shipping included in price. Restoration would be extra.
here is another stove broiler, or maybe it was meant to be used on a grill(?). Heavy and rough cast – it features an interior that is just over 12″ x 7″ with a handle of just under 7″
There are a series of numbers on the underside of the handle but they are hard to read, (8868? maybe)
Oversized so shipping is a bit more.
Cleaned (lye method) and seasoned lightly with non-GMO canola oil.
$20 + $20 for shipping (included in price)
This is a working old Keen Kutter #21 grinder with attachments. Patented May 29, 1906. Mechanically sound, this piece is a great display item, but could easily be cleaned to get it back into usable shape.
Marked: KK 21, E.C. Simmons Keen Kutter U.S.A on one side. the other side is marked Pat May 29, 06 E.C. Simmons Keen Kutter U.S.A.

Can you imagine getting your deli items prepared with this old time hand cranked deli slicer? This is a piece which I bet could tell some stories. Admittedly I’m presuming this was made to slice meats and cheese based on my research, but it could easily have been for potatoes and vegetables.
features a counter clamp to fasten it in place, a rotary head that has four razor blade like blades, a hand crank for turning the rotary head and a push plate to guide your item to the blades and not risk those delicate little fingers. There definitely was some art to using one of these.
I find this one to be just an amazing little bit of historical ingenuity. While it’s perfectly usable, it would make an amazing display piece too.
Sold in as found condition (everything works).
$65 shipped (FedEx with insurance) for $25 additional we can restore it for you if you’d like (Takes 7-14 days before we can ship).

Counterfeit Griswold #0.
These come up now and again. Fake Griswold #0′s made because the collector value on a real one is fairly high.
This one is a fairly well documented fake pattern with the odd spacing and alignment of the “Griswold” name, crude casting and rough iron.
Marked: ”Gris wold” “Erie PA, U.S.A.”
For a few buck it’s an interesting piece to have.
American (by Erie – pre Griswold) stove damper #7.
One of the harder to find dampers by size. Marked “AMERICAN, ERIE, PA.” “541″ on one side, “7. PAT’D MAR. 23, 1875, MAR. 13, 1877, APR. 20, 1880″ on the other.
A very old piece of pre Griswold Americana.
