This No. 6 Cast Iron Skillet was made by the Wagner Manufacturing Company in Sidney, OH between 1935 and 1959. It has a gorgeous, glossy black cooking surface with only very light signs of use. The original grind marks are still visible on the cooking surface, and are prominent on the interior walls. This is a pan that is begging you to cook in it!
It has the WagnerWare stylized logo on the underside, which is crisp and clear, and the product number 1056 B. The pan is 13.75″ long, including the handle, 9 5/8″ wide at the pouring spouts, and almost 2″ high. The cooking surface is approx 7.5″ in diameter.
There is tiny, almost imperceptible movement. I can slide a sheet of paper folded under the right pouring spout, but only at the open end. I cannot fit the folded end of the paper. In my opinion, this pan would cook wonderfully on any cooking surface.
This pan has a couple of pinpricks both inside and outside, likely caused by air bubbles during the casting process. There are less on this pan than many others that we see. Above the logo, there is a small indentation about the size of a pencil eraser, and another shallower one to the right side. There is a little discoloration around the logo on the underside of the pan. There is also a very small smooth dot to the right of the product number. These are superficial and I only point them out to be thorough. Please examine the photos.
This pan has been cleaned to bare iron and seasoned with one coat of Crisco. It is ready for immediate use, or display!
