This is a really old piece in collector grade. Pretty, old gate marked handled griddle made c. 1870-1880 (roughly 150 years old). Great cooking surface with great polishing marks and a few scars. 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. Small mark under handle could be an “x”, outside shows some casting marks.
Marked: “8” on handle maybe a tiny “x” under the handle
Cleaned via lye method, hand buffed and seasoned with 3 layers of non-GMO canola oil.
No cracks, chips or bow. Bit of a wobble on a sheet of glass. Nice cooking surface with some flea bite tool marks and some scars from use. Should fill in as it gets some kitchen time. Outer casting is a bit cruder, and shows some roughness and even light pitting.
As always we are happy to take back pieces if you are not 100% satisfied. (Please see return policy)
