Please note all pictures on our site are of the actual piece you will receive, not a stock photo of a similar piece. Additionally all our pieces unless marked otherwise are fully restored and seasoned. Just wash them and start cooking.
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.
As always we are happy to take back pieces if you are not 100% satisfied. (Please see return policy)
