At over 130 years old, this gorgeous skillet is an incredible slice of American history.
Known as a “First Series” ERIE skillet, it was made between 1880 – 1886, in Erie, Pennsylvania by the Griswold Manufacturing Company.
Griswold made six series of ERIE skillets up until 1907. First Series skillets are in high demand as there were considerably fewer made than all the other series, except the fourth.
This particular pan features the “ERIE” logo, an external heat ring, and the number 12 on the underside. It also has the scooped handle specific to the first series pans. The diameter of the cooking surface is 11-1/2″.
It sits flat.
This pan is in incredible condition, the best I have ever seen.
The original milling marks are prominent on both the interior walls, and the cooking surface. There are almost no signs of use.
Many of these older pans have pitting on the underside, from use over an old coal or wood stove. This pan does not!
There is a casting mark on the exterior wall opposite the handle – likely from sands shifting in the casting mold.
I have taken lots of photos, so please click on the magnifying glass to view them in detail.
This pan has been thoroughly cleaned and heat seasoned with our special mixture of coconut & canola oils, and beeswax. It is ready for immediate use or display!
