Thanks for your kind comments!  I hope to learn a lot more about my cookware and cast iron in general.  Enjoy scanning the Forum and reading other people's posts.  Everyone seems so knowledgeable on this site!

Hello Brian. You have some very nice looking iron there. Thank you for sharing with us. I also like the way you have your pieces labeled, looks professional as all get out. I see this is your first post as well. So welcome to WAGS. Its great to have you join us. I see you have a Johnson Combo Cooker there. I see parts of them all over the place where pieces have got lost. I try to ask the sellers what are they and I very often get a chuckle out of the responses I sometimes get.

14-inch side-handled round export ware griddle.  I had this posted on the old forum, somewhere, too.  Catalogue 40 lists five sizes, with this being the middle one.

This pot is marked on the bottom "ERIE"  and it has a rim around the outer circumference (aka heat ring).

I've used it for rendering fats - my grandma's cook used it only to render beef kidney suet - for preparing the English cakes my great grandmother loved.

If there is another mark on this, I have not been able to find it.

There is this "mystery" skillet, which is rather cruddy - I've used it a lot for baking bread at high temps in my barbecue - after cracking a LeCreuset pot - so it has been exposed to high temps and not been treated all that well, occasionally knocking off some of the burnt-on stuff with the wire grill brush.  I've tried to chisel off some of the burnt on polymerized gunk, but it is not easy. (oven cleaner had little effect)
I bought it when a local sporting goods/gun store that carried some "camp cooking" utensils went out of business some time in the '90s (I think).
It's hefty - weighs more than similar sized skillets.  I haven't been able to figure out who made it. It says "American Cookware" and made in the USA  and it isn't old - it was new when I bought it but the store had been in business since 1940 but I don't think it had been on the shelf that long...

I would like to know something about it, I don't care if it is worth anything, I'm just curious.

Besides the American made CI, I also have some English that was brought here by my great grandmother. My cousins and I divvied up the "old junk" that no one wanted after my grandparents died.
Nobody wanted these. 
(There are examples seen in the Downton Abbey kitchen.)

The big one is a 6-quart saucepan.





And this is the Griswold chicken fryer I have been using for about fifty years, inherited from my grandmother.
