Billy SEPTEMBER 25, 2013 AT AMIt depends a lot on the condition but it could be from – 0 . In this illustration, the reproduction is shown on the left and the authentic Griswold “Erie No. The bright orange rust and the smaller size are tell-tale signs of the reproduction, making spotting the genuine “Erie” easy in this pair.ERIE iron remains among the finest of Griswold’s foundry products.One Griswold item especially difficult to locate is the Erie No.Specializing in the best, I collect Griswold cast iron cookware made between 18.The earliest of the cookware was marked ERIE for the Pennsylvania city it was made in.
In addition, the brothers manufactured tin hollowware for government contracts.In 2000, the American Culinary Corporation purchased the rights, legacy, and remaining facilities of the Wagner and Griswold lines. The pretty, colorful stuff – read my blog entry for some of the finer points of Enameled Cast Iron vs. James SEPTEMBER 2, 2013 AT AMWhy is that Wagner 1058 Skillet silver on the outside? beleive from 1950′s any information about it.diane legendre SEPTEMBER 25, 2013 AT PMwhat is older wagner ware or wagner. think the corn bread pan c is from the 1950′s Billy SEPTEMBER 30, 2013 AT PMHey Diane! Can you tell me what is written on the bottom of the cornbread pan? The bottom line is that if the tea pot says “1891 Original” then, against logic, the cast iron piece is probably only about 20 years old. Billy OCTOBER 7, 2013 AT PMHi Greg, Thanks for coming by…The former employee noted above is Peter Pike and is the President/CEO of the American Culinary Corporation. Pike is dedicated to the legacy and quality of the Wagner and Griswold names. Please check out my post on how I acquired my first piece of Wagner Cast Iron. (the top picture) It is one of the aluminum skillets? Anyway, let me know about what the bottom of the tea pot says. Mary JULY 13, 2014 AT PMI inherited my grandmothers deep skillet which looks just like the one at the top of this site. You have precisely described the way I found Wagner and Griswold.Tin hollowware is describes general tableware like sugar bowls, tea or coffee pots, soup containers, hot food covers, water pitchers, platters, butter plates and other metal items that went with the dishware on a table. Bernard and Milton Wagner are credited as the first to cast iron for cookware in Sidney, Ohio.Wagner Ware was born.(A short footnote about the Centennial Commemoration of the 1991 version of the skillet, The Wagner’s 1891 Original Cast Iron Skillet – though it stated “Original,” along with a date, this line of cookware was manufactured in 1991 through the late 1990s.An interesting note is that cookware that declares it was Made in the USA are typically not considered collectable pieces. Margaret SEPTEMBER 27, 2013 AT PMMy dad has a Wagner 1891 original cast iron tea pot that is rustled or deteriorated inside Frm yrs of keeping water in it on their wood burning stove. Well, you can clean the inside but it will definitely take some work. There’s another step after the oven cleaner sessions where you treat the rusted area with a 50/50 mix of vinegar and water. However, the kettle might not be a “collectible” though it will probably hold some sentimental value.
