I recently acquired an O'Brien & O'Brien Dutch Oven, Chicago, Ill.  Does anyone have any information regarding the foundry that produced this line of cookware?

Thanks ya'll, I ran into a similar lack of information when I Googled the name, and noticed that the Dark Side has a list of CI Manufacturers, and O&O is listed, but when I clicked on the link, I got redirected, so that will be a research project for my limited slack time.  Again, thank you.

I've long wondered what, if any, association existed between Obrien & Obrien and Crescent Ozark. They're virtually identical from the bee hive covers to the manner in which they are marked underneath and there's the  proximity of Chicago and St. Louis.

Broke out my O &O dutch oven and a #9 unmarked skillet that fits a Wagner lid and whipped up a pot roast and a pone of corn bread that was fit for royalty.  Hurt myself, almost, and cleanup took less than five minutes (for the CI). The O&O is an excellent choice for not only the stovetop but the oven as well.
