Please note all pictures on our site are of the actual piece you will receive, not a stock photo of a similar piece. Additionally all our pieces unless marked otherwise are fully restored and seasoned. Just wash them and start cooking.
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.
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.
As always we are happy to take back pieces if you are not 100% satisfied. (Please see return policy)
