This fabulous matching dutch oven and lid set was made by the Griswold Manufacturing Company in Erie, Pennsylvania between the 1920’s and 1950’s. The dutch oven has a bail handle and an assist.
The lid is marked “GRISWOLD No 7 TITE-TOP DUTCH OVEN” on the top, and and on the underside is “PATENTED FEB. 10. 1920.”, with the Griswold large block logo, and underneath “ERIE PA., U.S.A 2604 B”.
The oven is marked with “THE GRISWOLD MFG. CO. CAST 7 IRON TITE-TOP DUTCH OVEN” on the underside, with the Griswold large block logo and “ERIE PA., U.S.A. PAT’D. MAR. 16. 20. 2603 A” under the logo.
All markings are crisp and clear.
The oven is 7″ high, including the lid, and 3-7/8″ without the lid. It measures 9-1/2″ in diameter.
The lid is minty! The pan has some light pitting around the outside of the cooking surface and there are some areas of textural variation on the exterior walls. Please examine the photos closely.
This pan has a small amount of movement when I press firmly on the rims, and it spins. This won’t stop it from cooking beautiful food in your oven – here is a blog post our founder Mary wrote on pan movement if you’d like to know more.
This dutch oven has been thoroughly cleaned and heat seasoned with one coat of Crisco. It is ready for immediate use or display!
