This lovely No. 7 skillet was made in Erie, Pennsylvania between 1892 – 1905 by the Griswold Manufacturing Co. It pre-dates the iconic Griswold logo!
It is marked on the underside: “ERIE” 702 7.
The markings are starting to fade a little. From certain angles, it almost looks like part of the pattern (half the “0” and the “2), and one set of quotation marks were not cast properly. Please see the pictures
The cooking surface is 8-1/8″ wide, and the pan is 10-1/2” wide at the pouring spouts. It is sits flat!
The usual pitting one sees on the underside of these pans is absent, and the exterior walls are beautiful! The cooking surface has some average signs of use with some very superficial scratches and variations in texture. This will fill in with additional use and seasoning, this pan will only get better!
I have taken lots of pictures, so please click on the magnifying glass to see them in detail.
This piece of American history has been thoroughly cleaned, and heat-seasoned with our special mixture of coconut & canola oils, and beeswax, along with a little Crisco.
It is ready for immediate use or display!
