Old bottom gated or "gate mark" cast iron skillet. #10 / 12" or so, about 2-1/2" deep (big skillet). Marked 10 on the handle. There are no cracks, breaks, etc,, there are a few casting flaws here and there including the cook surface.Could be scratches, dark spots where oil pooled during seasoning, etc. It has not been used since the restoration process... Photos were taken outdoors in natural light and are a big part of the description. Just a bit of very subtle movement if you catch it right.
Cook surface is very smooth to the touch. Keep in mind that these type of pieces are very old & were cast and finished using less refined methods...
Most likely 100 + years old, and has a lot of "character". I personally really like these sort of pieces, but they aren't for everyone.
Please study the pictures, use the zoom and see if it will work for you. This is, in my opinion, a nice example of this type of skillet in a bit harder to find size.
I've restored hundreds of pieces of cast iron cookware. All go through lye to remove any crud, organic material, seasoning, etc. Then I run them through the electrolysis process to remove any corrosion, rust, impurities, etc.They are scrubbed by hand using dish liquid, stainless steel scouring pads, stainless steel brushes, and magic erasers under cold water to bring them back to the bare metal finish. Finally, all pieces are run through three rounds of seasoning using vegetable shortening. Cast iron cookware will last hundreds of years and generations if properly taken care of. These are beautiful, heirloom quality pieces made right here in the USA.
Will be bubble wrapped and surrounded by packing material to ensure that they don't shift in transit. They are not making cookware like this anymore, and I would consider it tragic if anything were to happen to these in transit. Just contact me before to make sure we can make arrangements that work for both of us and I'll add the option to the listing. If you have any questions, need additional pictures, or anything else please message me. Thank you for viewing this listing.
