This gorgeous old griddle was manufactured by the Griswold Mfg. Co. in Erie, PA between 1909 and 1920. It is in remarkable condition. I hope whomever purchases this pan treasures it and hands it down to future generations (okay, I hope that with all my pans, but especially the really old beautiful ones).
The pan measures 9-7/8″ in diameter (measured at bottom rim). It is ~5/8″ tall. It has a small amount of movement when I press on the rim, about a dime’s worth. You can read more on pan movement on my blog here.
The bottom has a raised reinforcement ring, around the logo. The griddle is marked on the bottom as shown in the photos: 738, the Griswold slant logo, and the number 8.
There is some very light pitting on the underside of the pan – likely from use over an old wood or coal stove. This pan has history!
Milling marks are prominent on the cooking surface; I do not think this griddle has had much if any use. There is an air bubble near the rim at 12 o’clock. Please see photos.
This piece has been cleaned to bare iron and heat-seasoned with our special mixture of coconut & canola oils, and beeswax. It is ready for use and display!
