This is a mystery piece that people in the cast iron community have talked about for years. Patterned and numbered like a Griswold in design, but of a pattern number that no one can confirm. While it is possible that this is an unacknowledged Griswold, recent speculation seems to suggest this was made by Wagner from Griswold designs after the 1957 acquisition of the Griswold patterns, patents and designs.Handle design and lid design strongly suggest it's Griswold roots. Either way its a very nice (and very heavy) piece. Sits flat, good cooking surface with areas of light pitting which should not effect use and should smooth over and fill in as seasoning from use builds up.
Measures 13" across 10 3/4" wide and 7 1/2 deep. This is a great addition to any collection as they don't show up very often.
