My MIL calls me this afternoon and tells me she has two cast iron pots. She found them hiding in a closet and wants to get rid of them. She asks if I want them. Well, yeah!
The funny thing about this is on Facebook two friends and I were discussing cast iron just this morning. What pieces to do we have and what pieces we wish we had. I want a square skillet, which my MIL provided today. 🙂 I also want a large dutch oven with legs. It’s on my Christmas list.
I drive over to the in-laws to pick up my new treasures. This first one here is a dutch oven. She did not have a lid and I am not sure if one came with it. It is 10 inches in diameter and 4 inches deep.
The handle is something I haven’t seen before. That doesn’t mean it is unique, just that I haven’t seen it before. Notice on one side there is an extension of the edge, like a handle. If you hold that and the wire handle, the hook at the pot keeps the wire handle from folding all the way back to your other hand. Does that make any sense at all? Well, all I can figure out is that this pot is made to pour something out of it.
The bottom says, Wagner Ware Sidney -0-. Can anyone tell me the age of this? I know it was passed down from my husband’s grandmother.
The second treasure is a 10 inch square skillet. I really like the size and I am sure it will be one of my daily favorites real soon.
The bottom has no markings except a D at the handle. Can anyone tell me about this one?
I am real excited about my new treasures and am looking forward to breaking them in. Wonder what I should make first?
