Gate marked pans typically do not have the manufacturer’s name on them.Gate marked pans are the oldest of the old cast iron cookware; almost certainly antique.If you click on “visit page,” it will link to the page where the pan is featured.There, if you are lucky, you will find identifying information about your pan.Pans of recent vintage have thicker walls than do antique pans. A number 8 Lodge pan of more recent vintage is more than a pound heavier in weight than the 1906 Griswold number 8 “ERIE” spider skillet, and almost a pound heavier than a Griswold slant logo “ERIE” number 8 pan.TIPS TO IDENTIFY THE MANUFACTURER OF VINTAGE CAST IRON SKILLETS Some of the unmarked pans you may come across in your cast iron travels were made by Griswold, Lodge, Birmingham Stove & Range (“BSR”), Vollrath, Wagner, Favorite Stove & Range, and Chicago Hardware Foundry.

In around 1890, this casting process was mostly discontinued.

One of the most valuable, collectible, and sought-after Griswold pans is the skillet that is marked with a spider in a web, with the word “ERIE” in the spider’s body. This skillet, in excellent condition, can be worth thousands of dollars. They also have a heat ring, pan number and 4-digit product number in a slightly italicized font imprinted on the bottom.

A more common unmarked Griswold line is Griswold Iron Mountain pans. Griswold also manufactured skillets marked VICTOR, as previously mentioned.

There are many resources to help you identify and date a piece when you know the manufacturer.

My “go-to” reference materials for dating and identifying pieces for which I know the manufacturer are two much-used reference books: Smith & Wafford, The Book of Griswold & Wagner, Favorite, Wapak, Sidney Hollow Ware (5 ©2001 (commonly called the “Red Book”).

    The next major development in neuroanatomy came from the Greek Alcmaeon, who determined that the brain and not the heart ruled the body and that the senses were dependent on the brain.
