This is a Favorite Piqua Ware No. 2 cast iron skillet. It was made by the Favorite Stove and Range Company, in Piqua OH between 1916 – 1934. The words “FAVORITE PIQUA WARE” are on the back of the pan, as is the number “2”.
If you are looking to finish out your collection of FPW pans, this is a great opportunity to obtain a No. 2 at an exceptionally reasonable price!
Please look at the photos – the back and walls of this pan are beautiful, but there has been some impact to the cooking surface, and it is not smooth.
Whilst I lead tested this pan and received a negative result, I would feel more comfortable if this pan were used for display purposes only.
The skillet is 9-7/8″ long including the handle, and 6-3/16″ in diameter including the spouts. The cooking surface is approx. 5 3/4″ in diameter.
This pan has been cleaned to bare iron and heat seasoned with one coat of Crisco.
