#5 Unknown maker...can you help me identify?
« on: March 22, 2020, 10:08:41 AM »
Hi all.

I was gifted a 5 inch skillet from my mother and I'm trying to figure out the relative age and maker of the piece.  Outside of the 5 stamped on the handle, I don't see any other identifying marks.  Any ideas on the maker and age?

Here are your pics so we can see them.  It's made by Vollrath.

I have a Vollrath #5 on my stovetop right now.  It is my favorite smaller skillet, my go-to skillet for almost everything for one-two servings.  Your mother did you right well.   [smiley=food_plates.gif]
