    This is a museum quality piece. Just gorgeous. You could use it immediately (though we always recommend washing, or adding another coat of seasoning before use). I don’t see a sprue here or a bottom gate so I’m making the assumption that this is a later piece but it could actually be of European origin and much earlier. Pestle is barbell shaped and double ended. It was hand cast in two halves and has a well defined middle ring which was probably a stab at a more ergonomic design.. Casting quality is very high.

    Unmarked.

    4” 1/2 diameter (at top of lip), 5” tall. Pestle is 7” long.

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

    No cracks, chips.  Sits flat when tested on a sheet of glass.  Beautiful interior smoothness typical of this casting..

    Nobody is sure who made these pieces, some people say Lodge/Blacklock, some people say Wagner, still others say Griswold (based on the ears) or an unknown foundry. I personally lean towards these being made by Wagner (as I’ve found marked Wagner pieces with a similar star), but no one doubts it’s age. This is an old piece. It’s also a very useful and convenient shape for use – just ideal for soup, chili, stew or even making pasta. Cooking surface is not stone polished, but rougher to the touch. Some casting flaws, and tool marks are present.

    Markings: There is a ~ 3/4” star on the underside of both the body and the lid. The lid also has the number “9” or possibly “6” near the inner edge. The body has the number “9” or possibly again a “6” on the top of one of the bail ears.

    Size: 10” diameter, 6” 1/2 tall.

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

    No cracks, chips. Small wobble when tested on a sheet of glass. Cooking surface is very good but there are some casting flaws, and too marks, but it should smooth out beautifully into a great user.

    This is a mystery piece. Looks identical to no notch Lodge and is believed to have been concurrent with the no notch Lodge c. 1910-1930. I personally wonder if they were a made by Lodge as a economy brand, or for a specific retailer. The only real difference save for the “P 1” or “P 2” marking on the piece seems to be that the sizes are all a little bit smaller. Cooking surface is very good – but it isn’t quite glassy. it should get there but there are some casting flaws and tool marks.
    
Marked: with a raised number “8” in on the top of the handle as well as a “P 1”. The underside is totally unmarked.

    10” Diameter excluding spouts.

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

    No cracks or chips. Wobbles when tested on a sheet of glass. Cooking surface is very good but not quite glassy but should get there with a little bit of use.

    Will be shipped FEDEX ground and will arrive with 1-6 days depending on how far you live from NY.

    If there ever were any markings on this Chistmas tree holder I can’t find them. I can’t even tell you how old it is – although it appears to be sprue poured. I’d guess it was made in the 1920s. Nice and heavy and should hold a good sized tree. Has a 6” diameter with adjustable screws to adjust to any size tree,

    These mysterious unmarked breakfast skillets turn up from time to time and cause some speculation about who really made them. While some do think these were made by Lodge, others just aren’t sure. Odds are they were made a store brand by a smaller foundry who sold them to a number of outlets who put a paper label on them. They are cool little pieces with absolutely no markings, and they are certainly less common than the Wagner and Griswold models. Cooking surface has the typical pebbled finish of breakfast griddles as the piece could not be polished the same way. There are some casting flaw visible here and a few tool marks, but nothing which should effect use. Tiny bit of wobble means this will not be good for a glass top stove but should be great on gas or coils. Not the best seasoning job (see the spot on the bottom) but that will fade away as the piece darkens.

    Unmarked

    8” 3/4 x 8” 3/4 plus the handle.

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

    No cracks or chips. Tiny wobble when tested on a sheet of glass. Cooking surface is good, but pebbled to the touch and will only improve with use

    Sold as found – totally unrestored as desired by collectors.

    Very Cool piece!!

    One of the oldest copper pieces I’ve found. Handle style suggest it is at least 150 years old. Dovetailed bottom (made in two pieces), smith made beaten handle that looks like copper, but could be bronze, with handmade peens. Handle has the markings “00” on it which many believe are owner marks. Very heavy piece weighing almost 3 1/2 pounds. Probably French in origin. I have not even cleaned it, but it looks like the tinning on this one is pretty good and may not need to be redone.

    Marked “00” on the handle.

    8” 7/8 diameter, 4” 3/8 deep, 11” 3/4 handle

    Unrestored. Sold as found.

    Waterman style #3 gem pan with bottom gate.  This is based on the Nathanial Waterman Patent of 1859.   They were widely copied by a number of foundries and made without the Waterman name.  Waterman pans are end poured/gated but this one is bottom poured so it almost certainly came from another foundry.  Still it’s a gorgeous well made piece that shows how good small foundry iron could really be.   Ready for use or display this gem is in excellent condition – with it’s only imperfections are very minor pouring flaws from the foundry.  Underside of the cups are beautifully smootherd, while the interior is typical of gem pans that could not be stone polished on the interior.  You don’t find many this nice.

    Marked bottom:  “3” on the underside of one handle.

    12” 1/2 long x 8” 1/2, x 1” tall

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

    No cracks or chips.  Sits on the gates so it does wobble (as expected) when tested on a sheet of glass.  Cooking surface is very good.

    SOLD AS FOUND.  Lightly cleaned but not restored.

    This should be used as a display piece somewhere – maybe in a museum, historical house, or in a top notch private collection.  This hinged old cast iron match holder / safe was made before 1850 and features a floral motif.  It was certainly painted or plated with metal back in the day.  This is an excellent casting and I’m tempted to think this was a Bradley & Hubbard Co piece (based on the fact we found it with several from that maker and the quality is similar) but there are no markings to tell me.  This could easily be painted or japanned and restored to beautiful shape, but I did not want to ruin the as found look here (as I know less about match holders than cookware).  But this is a cool as heck piece.  There is a hairline crack in the lid about 1.5 inches long but it is stable and could be stabilized even more by repainting the box.

    4” 7/8 x 3” x 1 (excluding height of lid).

    Cleaned lightly but not restored.  SOLD AS FOUND.
