This gorgeous Antique Wagner Sydney O No. 9 Cast Iron Skillet with Heat Ring was manufactured by the Wagner Manufacturing Co of Sidney, Ohio between 1898 & 1915. It is in excellent condition, particularly considering it’s over 100 years old!
The underside of the pan has the writing ” “WAGNER” SIDNEY, O. ” with “9 B” underneath. It is 16.5″ long including the handle, 12″ wide and the cooking surface is 9.75″ in diameter.
This pan sits almost flat. There is an almost imperceptible movement when pressed strongly. I can slide a single sheet of paper underneath, but cannot slide a folded corner of paper. This pan is ideal for any cooktop.
The cooking surface is gorgeous. There are some small pinpricks and faint signs of use, but these will disappear with use and additional seasoning. It is extraordinarily good considering its age! There are some casting marks and roughness on the underside, and a few pinpricks from the casting process on the exterior walls. Please examine the photos for the details.
A pan in this condition will not last long.
This pan has been cleaned to bare iron and seasoned with Crisco. It is ready for immediate use and display!
