No one knows which foundry really made these skillets, but they are widely believed to have been made in western NY or PA, as that seems to be the area where they are most commonly found. They are heavy, and have a heavy (large dimple) hammered pattern in the iron compared to those made by Griswold, Wagner, Lodge or Chicago Hardware. Certainly vintage going back until at least the 1950s and possibly as early as the 1910-1920 period..
Good piece typical of this foundry. Heavy hammered pattern on the outer wall. Decent cooking surface which has some minor casting flaws and an almost smooth cooking surface when you run fingers over it. Should only improve as it’s used. Small wobble means its a really good piece for a gas range, not so good on glass.
Marked: “3” on the top of the handle. Two dimples on the underside of the handle is the only other marking.
6” 1/8 diameter
Cleaned via lye method, hand buffed and seasoned with 3 layers of non-GMO canola oil.
No cracks, chip. Small wobble when tested on a sheet of glass. Cooking surface is very decent but will only get better with use.
As always we are happy to take back pieces if you are not 100% satisfied. (Please see return policy)
