W C Davis skillet
« on: August 13, 2018, 01:59:04 AM »
There is an estate sale coming up with photos of a Davis skillet. An L M Vanetten 3 pan flop griddle. And what looks like a vapor griddle that is marked Aurora Griddle Co. Aurora Ill. could not find it on the foundry list. What should I have to pay for these if I get to that sale?   Thanks JR

Sorry I missed your timeline JR and its probably too late.
The Van Etten flop is the Schofield style and a recent one I think by C Mfg. on eBay went for about $90 that was in excellent shape.


The other two items, no clue and probably not much data on them due to their scarcity.
The good chefs never burn anything--we call it "culinary brown"!!

Thanks Randy, I went to the auction and the Davis skillet was in great shape about a # 7 size.  It sold for over $100.      The flop griddle had a large crack but still brought $60.      The vapor griddle was in good shape and marked C.M.P. ASS'N 1915 Aurora Griddle Co. I did buy that griddle but it did not go easy. Anyone know what C.M.P. ASS'N stands for or anything about Aurora Griddle Co...    Maybe it should go on the Foundry list.  I will try to post a photo.
