This number 12 small logo skillet was manufactured by the Griswold Manufacturing Company in Erie, Pennsylvania between 1939 and 1944. It measures 18-13/16 long, including the handle, 14-5/16″ across the pouring spouts and it is 2-5/16″ tall. It has a heat ring and an assist handle.
The pan is marked as shown in the photos – the Griswold small logo, No. 12 ERIE PA., and the product number which is 719 D. It has a lovely cooking surface, though there is a small pitted area on the edge of the interior wall, approximately the size of the penny. There are a few small casting bubbles on the bottom of the pan. I took lots of pictures from every angle, so please examine the photos.
The pan has about a dime’s worth of movement when pressing hard in certain areas of the rim. I think this is of no consequence and this pan will be a fabulous cooker on any cooktop, but I want you to be aware. See the blog post on pan movement, here.
This is a lovely pan and it will be a wonderful addition to any collection.
This pan has been thoroughly cleaned and heat seasoned with one coat of Crisco. It is ready for immediate use or display!
