    You don’t find many pieces this old in this condition – so good you could use it right next to the best in your collection.

    Serious collector piece. A real WOW! Very early skillet designed for stove use before the advent of the heat ring. Stub footed pieces like this were likely the transition form between the spider skillet, and the earliest heat ring pieces. Many were made by modifying forms used for spiders by removing the legs so they could sit on or inside an indoor iron stove ring. This is one of the finest examples of this you will find – as close to a glassy finish as you will ever find on one this old. There are flea bite tool marks and some casting flaws on the interior and fine wood stove texture on the outer parts. gate marked.

    9” 7/8 diameter (excluding handle) – stands 3”tall.

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

    No cracks or chips. interior is as glassy as you could hope to find on one this old.

    Ok, I’m a huge aficionado of single spout skillets and this one is just a nice little piece. The handle on this one is flattened and scalloped in design. Cooking surface is glassy and smooth save where sand inclusions got into the mold – those should reduce as the pan is used. Light for the size. Great for display. Bottom has casing flaws and some pitting from use over a wood stove.

    Marked: Only marked with the Roman numeral “Viii” on the underside of the handle.

    10” 1/2 diameter.

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

    No cracks or chips. Does sit on it’s gate mark so there is back and forth wobble on a sheet of glass.. Cooking surface is mostly smooth and glassy aside from the casting flaws due to sand inclusions in the mold. That should smooth out and fill in somewhat with use.

    I love finding something I’ve never found before and this long pan/double griddle – which may have also been a sad iron tray, certainly qualifies. Has round tab style handles one of which has the size number 8 on it. Unusually wide for such a piece. It was probably made to fit a very specific wood stove back in the day – but today will make an excellent griddle. Bottom gated with a single gate – suggesting it is a pre-1880 piece. The piece isn’t perfect, there is some very shallow pitting along the walls, but nothing significant. The cooking surface has some casting flaws including a central pouring flaw – but for a piece of this age it would be considered minor.

    Marked only with an 8 on one of the tab handles.

    22” handle to handle, outer lip to outer lip is 20” x 10” 1/4

    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 will wobble sheet of glass. Cooking surface is very good but it has casting flaws and some shallow pitting near the edges. 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.

    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.

    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.

    A very nice old spider skillet (skillet with legs) with the rounded bottom (posnet style) made before 1870.  While this piece can absolutely be used it’s a better display piece than a user due to shallow broad pitting.  Bottom gated.  This piece may have had a tin lid at one point, but it may have never have had one.  Has a lipped rim that suggests a lid could have been used however.  Piece has some light to moderate pitting as it was found in a damp farmhouse basement in upstate New York.  Stands on three legs.  Would be great for a Civil War re-enactor.

    Nice little posnet style spider skillet (rounded bottom) with three stubby legs.  Style of pot dates this to roughly 1840-1870 era making it roughly 150 years old.  Definitely a nice old school piece which could still be used but would make a superb display piece for any collector.  Features a remarkably smoothed  glassy cooking surface with a number of small casting flaws creating little dimples in the cooking surface.  Sits on three stubby legs ~ 3/8” high.    Bottom is gated and has a large raised number  8 about 1” 1/4 tall.  Look like the handle on the form (not the piece of iron, but the form used to make the mold the iron was made in) was repaired at some point as you can see the area on the handle.

    Marked:  “8” on the bottom

    9” 1/8 diameter (excluding handle)

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

    No cracks or chips.  Nice glassy cooking surface with several casting voids.  Should fill in with use.  Outside has a number of casting flaws, but nothing which would effect use, or value.

    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.
