This particularly beautiful No. 7 skillet was made by the Griswold Manufacturing Co in Erie, Pennsylvania between 1920-1929.
The No. 7 pans are slightly less common than the No. 8’s.
It features the Griswold large block logo, with the words “CAST IRON SKILLET 7” above, and “ERIE PA., U. S. A.,” below, as well as the pattern number, 701 A. The markings are crisp and clear. I
It is 14-5/8″ long, including the handle, and the cooking surface has a diameter of approx 8-1/4″. There is a small amount of movement when I press firmly on the rim, but this is minor. This pan will be a great cooker on all cooktops!
The walls are beautiful, and the cooking surface only has a few light signs of use. There is a small casting mark on the right exterior wall, between the handle and the pouring spout.
I have taken lots of pictures, so please look at them closely by clicking on the magnifying glass.
This pan has been thoroughly cleaned, and seasoned with one coat of Crisco. It is ready for immediate use or display!
