This beautiful, and hard to find pan, was made by the Griswold Manufacturing Co in Erie, Pennsylvania between 1892-1905. It’s between 113 – 126 years old! There were 6 series of ERIE pans and this was made as part of the third series. The No. 6 is a hard size to find!
It features the “ERIE” logo on the underside, along with the pattern number 700, and the number 6 A. This was the first series of Griswold pans to feature a pattern number.
This skillet is approx 13-3/4″ long, including the handle, and 9-3/4″ wide at the pouring spouts. It sits flat, and will be wonderful on all cooktops.
It is in beautiful condition. The interior has a beautiful rich, black patina. There are some average signs of use, but far less than one would expect for a pan of this vintage. They are superficial only and will fill in with additional use and seasoning.
There is a casting mark on the underside, likely from sands shifting in the mold when it was made.
There is a very small inwards bow in the cooking surface. This doesn’t impact how it sits on your cooktop, but I have taken lots of pictures, so please click on the magnifying glass to view everything in detail.
This precious piece has been thoroughly cleaned, and heat seasoned with Crisco. It is ready for immediate use or display!
