DESCRIPTION

From a local Lancaster County Pennsylvania estate, here's a very early Cast Iron Skillet. Used at an open hearth, it has three short splayed legs, high sides, a flat bottom and a long handle and was cast in one piece. A good long rough and worn gate mark on the base provides clear evidence of it's very early age.

Very heavy this weighs 12-lbs.

Similar American Colonial Period pots and skillets can be found in the fine reference book "Early American Antique Country Furnishings" by George C. Neumann on page 181 and 182.

This had plenty of use at the hearth for many years as you can see from the heat pitting overall. And there is expected wear to the feet. It still displays handsomely. Untouched, we left it just as found. It's original patina is still in tact. A good and handsome original American Colonial Period cast iron cooking utensil ... perfect for your collection!

Size:

21" long - 11" across the rim - 3" depth of pan - 5-1/4" high including feet

CONDITION

Overall in Excellent Condition. No breaks in the ironwork.

Shows a fabulous patina of age and use at the hearth

with expected heat pitting and some rust.
