That gate mark on the bottom generally means pre 1900.  Will be very difficult to determine who made it being that old.

Makes sense. I’m gonna get it in the electrolysis. See what it turns into.

Einstein, when describing radio said "Wire telegraph is like a very long cat. You pull his tail in NY and he meows in LA. And radio works the same way: you send signals here, they receive them there. The only difference is that there is no cat."

It looks like a spider, a dutch oven skillet with legs and a long handle. Very popular in the 1940s. I came into one about 10 years back. Was able trace it to a foundry in Pa but couldnt find anything else. Similar mold ridge on the bottom as yours has, but your handle is more decorative than mine. Mine also has a "12" stamped on the lid for diameter sizing. These spider skillets are quite collectable amongst the cast iron and dutch oven folk. If you own it, keep it. I use mine a lot when camping.

Awesome. I found it for 20$. Looked cool and unusual and for the most part in good shape. What I can tell.

I'm no expert, but have had several of these " spider leg " skillets with the foundry gate mark ( looks like a weld ridge on bottom of the pan as in your pic ). They have been variously described as late 1800 productions ( many CI foundrys back then - so hard to determine exact one, but there are reference books and collector experts who could more than likely do so.

Often referred to as pre-Lodge production, some refer to them as Blacklocks, the apparent fore-runner of Lodge, but there apparently are no documented resources available to identify a Blacklock production.

What makes your skillet more desirable as a collectors item ( IMHO ) is that it has the coal rim lid ( high sided rim ).Anything CI ( cast iron ) that old that has the combo ( skillet or pot with the lid ) is more desirable to collectors.

Great for using or wall-hanging, another vintage item that "talks"!

               "coal rim lid"
  Is that for laying hot coals on the lid?

yes, coal lids are more prevalent with " dutch Oven"  cooking units, but my inexperienced knowledge of the subject would suggest that if the lid fits the unit ( ie: skillet vs dutch oven ), then it most likely was made for that unit ( because of the forge casting required ). Plus, yours appears as a deeper skillet, so would appear to me that it may have been used  as both a skillet and oven capacity ( I know that the newer deep skillets are referred to as " chicken fryers ".

The handle on your unit is a good " signature" style, a collector/expert would probably be able to identify to a specific forge ( manufacturer ) and time era.  

Cast Iron Collectors forum will do an ID for you on their "open" site. Nothing like getting the straight info about your items from a good sourcing!

I snagged and posted pics of it over there. They had no clue. Maybe when it's rust free it might be clearer as to what it is.

Thanks! I’ll get it cleaned up and maybe you can post some more. I tried to sign up for the forum but it rejected my email.

the rust and corrosion "patina" shouldn't have any affect on the ID'd of the casting, I would have thought that the specific "design" of the handle specifically would have identified the foundry that poured it. The info is probably out there somewhere...

Actually, I got confused. I posted about Kriley's DO, with a similar handle. I'll do it now.
