ANTIQUE CAST IRON SPIDER SKILLET. It has a 7-1/4 flat top tapered handle that is rounded on the underside with an under cut at the end.It is 16-1/4 long and weighs slightly less than 5 pounds. It has a 9-1/4'' top rim diameter and is 2-1/4 deep to the smooth unpitted cooking surface. The outer surface appears heavily pitted, but may have been cast in that manner which could indicate it is older than noted above. The bottom has three worn triangular stub feet that vary slightly in length from 14/16" to 1'' and 1-1/16" and a 2-1/4 long gatemark. Despite the slight differences in the length of the legs the skillet sits steady with no wobble.
While cleaning the skillet, a faint 1'' long hairline was detected at the rim. The skillet was found in the central foot hills of the Virginia mountains and most likely was cast at a 18th century foundry near Fredericksburg VA, Hagerstown MD or in south central PA. A very early rounded form spider skillet that is in very good condition for its age. THANKS FOR VISITING LANE'S COUNTRY LARK!
