Made by the Griswold Manufacturing Co in Erie, Pennsylvania, between 1930 – 1939, this lovely vintage skillet features the Griswold large block logo on the underside, with “CAST IRON SKILLET 9” above it, and “ERIE, PA., U.S.A.” below, as well as the pattern number, 710 A. The writing is crisp and clear.
The pan is 16-1/4″ long, including the handle, and 12-1/4″ wide at the pouring spouts.
This pan is a lovely black color with average signs of use, such as some superficial scratches. These will even out with additional use and seasoning. The more you use it, the better this pan will get!
I have taken lots of pictures so please click on the magnifying glass to examine this skillet in more detail.
It doesn’t sit completely flat, when I press firmly on the rim it has noticeable movement, and spins. As such, I recommend that this pan only be used on raised cooktops such as gas. It would also be fabulous on the campfire!
I have thoroughly cleaned this pan, and heat seasoned it with our special combination of coconut and canola oils, and beeswax.
It is ready for immediate use!
