Really a special one. This was a very finely cast deeper spider skillet (skillet with legs) with the rounded bottom (posnet style) made before 1870. Very usable but the piece does have some minor surface imperfections from both casting (voids) and a very light pitting. Bottom gated. Pieces like this probably had tin lids, if they had any at all (although we do have one with an iron lid if you check out piece #1977). Fancier handle shaped much like a duck bill, with a gentle groove on the top. Stands on three legs. Would be great for a Civil War re-enactor.
8” 3/4 diameter (excluding handle)
Cleaned via lye method, hand buffed and seasoned with 3 layers of non-GMO canola oil.
No cracks, chips. Cooking surface has some roughness due to casting flaws and light pitting, but most of this will smooth over quickly with use.
As always we are happy to take back pieces if you are not 100% satisfied. (Please see return policy)
