1907 ERIE Recast Size 8

Weight : 3 lbs. 13.8 oz.

A collection of images from an antique cast iron skillet made somewhere around 1907 or possibly made in the early 1930's. There is much speculation on what this piece is and common theory is that it was not made by Griswold, a well known cast iron manufacturer from the late 19th to the mid 20th century, but rather a small failing foundry or an individual using outdated bottom gated casting technology from the same time period looking to make quick knock offs that could be sold as originals. By making a cast of the original skillet a reproduction or recast can be made. In theory, it should be slightly smaller and lighter since cast iron shrinks a little out of the cast. In reality it will be somewhat heavier. How is that so? This particular skillet looks like a series 5 Griswold.

The flash from the camera makes the skillet look brighter than it normally does. You can zoom in on the images if you mouse over them. During autoplay zoom is disabled. Shrinking the browser window will shrink its contents possibly making it easier to view the gallery.

Valued in the range of $25 - $35.
