This is a beautiful Griswold high dome lid, with the “button” Griswold logo. It is in minty condition.
The lid fits the Griswold no. 8 skillets with pattern no. 704. It is 10-7/8″ in diameter (not including the “ears”), and 10-1/2″ in diameter as measured from the outside of the inner ring. The lid is marked on the top with the button logo. On the underside, there are raised concentric circles which serve to make the lid “self-basting.” It has the Griswold large block logo. It is also marked 8 SELF BASTING, a long patent number, and the pattern number which is 1098.
The lid has been cleaned to bare iron and heat-seasoned with a mixture of coconut and canola oils and beeswax. It is ready for use and display!
