Rare Griswold cast iron skillet number 13. This is a BIG SKILLET, in a rare number 13 size. It isn't the biggest Griswold made, but it is the rarest large size.
Outside bottom of skillet is beautiful, silver colored with flecks of black. The Griswold logo and lettering is sharp, deep and prominent.
Skillet is black on the inside, transitions from black to silver on inner sides, and is mostly silver on the outside. No cracks adjacent to handle. Inside bottom of pan is glassy smooth, just as it should be.
You can still see the "swirl" of the mill marks on the pan if you look closely, and is most prominent on the pour spouts. Pan is an uneven black color on the inside, as shown. One spot in particular is more silvery colored, as shown.
Outside bottom of pan has some tiny pits in the surface if you look very closely, which is normal for these pans. There is one large pit on the outer side of the pan, as shown. Sides of handle are a bit irregularly milled, as shown; one side is more "stepped", other is smooth but a bit thinner. Very top of the outside edge is milled, as shown.I weighed the skillet and it weighs 8lbs 10.8oz. Top of pan, from inner lip to inner lip, is 14 in diameter.
Bottom of skillet is 13 in diameter, measured from outer edge to outer edge. Heat ring, from outer lip to outer lip, is 11 3/4. I checked to see if it sits completely flat. I put it down on a flat table and alternated pushing it down on one side than the other. There was a faint tilt and I could rock it back and forth very slightly.It was slight, but I could feel it if I pushed on one side and then the other. To make sure it was real cast iron, I tested the pan with a magnet and the magnet sticks to it everywhere not aluminum. I have more pictures available, and can take more pictures of the skillet if needed, feel free to request them.
