This is a gorgeous pan, in size 7, which is less common than the 8. The pan was manufactured by Griswold in around 1935.
It is marked on the underside with”VICTOR CAST IRON SKILLET THE GRISWOLD MFG. CO. 721 B 7 ERIE, PA., U. S. A.”. This is known as a “fully marked” Victor skillet. The writing is crisp and clear.
A unique feature of this pan is the upside down “7” on the handle. I have seen plenty of No. 7 Victor pans with either no number on the handle, or with a “7” that is right side up when the handle is pointing towards you. I have only ever seen one other Victor pan with an upside down 7.
This is a unique piece, and somebody will be very lucky to have this in their collection!
This pan is 10-1/8″ across the pouring spouts, and 14-3/16″ long, including the handle. It sits flat!
The cooking surface is beautiful with a lovely glossy, black patina with very few signs of use. The original grinding marks are prominent on the interior walls!
I have taken lots of photos, so please click on the magnifying glass to see them in detail.
This pan has been thoroughly cleaned, and heat-seasoned with one coat of Crisco. It is ready for immediate use or display!
