Pretty much perfect Griswold plain high dome lid cover. This cover will fit Griswold number 8 skillets that have a product number of 704, as well as the Griswold Iron Mountain skillet number 8. It will also fit the Griswold product number 777 chicken pan, and the Iron Mountain number 8 Chicken pan. I have several available.
The top is plain. It is about 11″ in diameter, and the inner lip is about 10″. The underside is marked “NO. 8”, and has the Griswold small logo, “ERIE PA.” and the pattern number which is 1098 B. It also has raised concentric circles which are designed to make the lid “self-basting.” The lid is in mint, like-new, condition. There are two “dusty” areas on the underside of the lid where the handles meet. This is not a flaw; this is how the lid was made.
The cover was cleaned to bare iron and then seasoned with one coat of Crisco vegetable shortening. It is ready for use or display.
*Please note the line in the middle of the lid handle. This is not a defect; this is how the handles were made.
