Museum quality! and when I say that there is no exaggeration, the only other one of these we know of is in the Buffalo Bill Cody museum. Likely made by a blacksmith on the western plains, or west coast of the United States. This skillet certainly predates the Civil War and could date back to 1800. It’s a very unique and special piece. Has some attributes of both cast iron and wrought iron, but there are enough hammer marks on the bottom to makes us lean towards it not being a flask cast piece, but a wrought iron piece. There appears to be a gate/grind mark near the neck of the handle. Hook at the end of the handle was probably for hanging.
15” 1/4 diameter. handle is roughly 13” 1/4 long
Cleaned via lye method, hand buffed and seasoned with 3 layers of non-GMO canola oil.
No cracks, chips. Meant for fire use, not meant to sit flat. Light pitting, tool marks and other signs of age are present. While you could use this piece it really is a historical piece that should be put on display.
As always we are happy to combine shipping, as well as take back pieces if you are not satisfied. (Please see return policy)
