This is a UNMARKED Wagner Sidney -O- #8 Chicken Fryer/ Deep skillet. Measuring approx 10.5in diameter and 3 in deep (Regular skillets are between 2"- 2.5" deep). Produced 1935- 1957.
This skillet is perfect for any meal. I find these skillets especially helpful when browning ground beef or making any dish with liquid. The name really says it all, as it would also be ideal for any frying! Beautiful cooking surface! Fully restored and ready for use!
What do you mean unmarked? Well back in the day, cast iron companies wanted to up the sales volume. One of the ways they tried to do that was by offering the skillets without their name brand mark on it, in common hardware and general stores for a lower price. The pieces with their name brand marks on it were sold in high end stores like Macy's.
Kind of an interesting story from history. These pans are the same high quality as the ones sold in the high end stores- just no name brand Wagner stamp on the back.
