I would also like to suggest, that, IF POSSIBLE, please attach additional pictures of the item, especially bottom showing markings, and top view.

I realize it may not always be possible to obtain those...  :)

I don't know if this anything you want on the Foundry Pages, but have been emailed some BS&R Labels.
This one is on a skillet. Check out the tab handle on the Dutch Oven lid, This must of been right after BS&R started using the DESI Molding machines. Later they went to a looped handle.

Also NOTEWORTHY, is that this set is after 1967, and the Stew Pan does NOT have Made In USA markings.

Interesting how on these smoothed bottom advertising skillets the handle are so different, especially the hang hole. As Lodge had that small smoothed bottomed set, makes me wonder if one spawned the other.

About that advertising skillet. I talked to someone who grew up in Whiting Indiana. Its about 15 miles from me. They said that there was indeed a Kozacik Hardware store there. I have seen several and have a very nice one with the label.

 How in the world did they get with BSR to cast that skillet?

Title: Re: BSR & ASW Original Labels and Packaging
Post by: JR Doffin on May 05, 2016, 11:21:28 PM
Then again, They no doubt sold quite a bit of BSR products  in their hardware store. Whiting is a big hard working blue collar oil refinery town. BSR could have had a great salesman that said    You know, we can put your name on a skillet!!  And rest they say is history.
