Here is your chance to get a whole set of collectable iron all at once. These heavy cast iron pieces have confounded the cast iron collecting world for decades. No one is quite sure who made them but it seems likely that they were made in western New York, or western Pennsylvania based upon the amounts found in that region. They may even have been made by multiple foundries due to the variations (mostly in handle style). They certainly are vintage pieces almost certainly no later than the 1940s-1950s and could be from as early as 1910-1920. As the name implies they are heavy pieces and they are prone to having casting flaws, which are usually little blemishes here and there (please see photos).
In this set we are including a #3, #5, #8 skillets, a chicken fryer #8 (also called a deep skillet) with matching lid, and a #8 dutch oven with matching lid. The dutch oven lid is interesting as usually when we find lids on a DO in this pattern they have ears and this one does not. All of these have good cooking surfaces (although the deep skillet has some casting flaw in the interior making it a bit rougher than the others) and all should smooth out and become glassy with some regular use. This is not an ideal set for a glass top stove as all of the pieces, except the dutch oven have some minor wobble.
Please note all our pieces unless marked otherwise are fully restored and seasoned. Just wash them and start cooking.
Marked: only with numbers. the lids both have raised “8” on them, and the skillets all have the size number on the handle.
#3 is ~ 6” 1/8 diameter, # 5 is ~ 7” 7/8 diameter, #8 is ~ 10” 1/4, deep skillet and DO are ~ 10” diameter
Cleaned via lye method, hand buffed and seasoned with 3 layers of non-GMO canola oil.
No cracks or chips. Cooking surface is overall excellent.
As always we are happy to combine shipping, as well as take back pieces if you are not satisfied. (Please see return policy)
