Every once in a while we run across an item that belongs in someones's prized collection. That is the case with the # 13 Griswold black iron Skillet with the Large Block logo and Heat Ring.
This is a once in a lifetime opportunity for a great many collectors. I never use the work "perfect" which is tossed about so frequently these days, but I see absolutely nothing wrong with this pan. No cracks, rust, warping or any of that. This skillet measures 14" in diameter and is 2 1/2" deep.
The weight is 6 1/2 pounds. It was seasoned when I got it and I saw no reason to alter it. The inside cooking area has no noticeable utensil marks but it has been used to some extent. The Heat Ring in its bottom shows no wear to speak of.
All printing is deeply incised and easily readable. What a great display piece to hand on the wall. The pictures show very well its fine condition. This piece has no undue wobble. I use the word "undue" in all my listings where applicable as while it does not move on our Formica counter, does not mean it won't on someone's stove grate.
It has not been tested on a glass stove top and no guarantee is made. What a great Christmas present for a dedicated Griswold collector. Any questions regarding the amount of the reserve will not be answered. Be sure to check out our other Griswold items we have listed and soon will be a # 10 Griswold Skillet with Large Block and Heat Ring. Notice: When purchasing this pan a few days ago, I checked it for bowing with a 6 straight edge and none was found.
After receiving a question about this, I rechecked it with a 12straight edge and found a slight downward bow. This is not noticeable in any picture. It is doubtful that it would cause a problem, either as a display piece or if someone decided to cook with it.
This is an important fact which I feel should be noted. It remains a great pan that is difficult to find.
