This is great deal for a family sized pan!
Made by the Griswold Manufacturing Co in Erie, Pennsylvania between 1920-1929, this pan features the Griswold large block logo, with “CAST IRON SKILLET 12” above it, and “ERIE PA., U. S. A.,” below, along with the pattern number 719. The writing is crisp and clear.
It measures 14-1/4″ across the pouring spouts, and is 18-13/16″ long, including the handle. It sits as flat as a pancake!
The interior walls are lovely, with the original grinding marks still prominent. This pan has a casting flaw on the exterior wall, as well as on the underside. The cooking surface has variations in texture, and noticeable signs of use. Additional use and seasoning will smooth this out, but I have discounted the price to take this into account.
This almost-antique skillet will be a marvelous cooker.
I have taken lots of pictures, so please click on the magnifying glass to see them in detail.
This pan has been thoroughly cleaned, and heat-seasoned with one coat of Crisco. It is ready for immediate use or display!
