John Wright Pan
« on: May 02, 2021, 05:47:55 PM »
Looking for info on this 1988 John Wright pan.  Any ideas on what it is called?  I wonder if it is a USA made piece as it is very heavy. The handles are different as one is a rattle snake the other some star design. The decoration around the edge reminds me of prickly pear cactus with la tunas on them. Any ideas or comments on the winged angel or chalice symbol?

Dwayne asked: "Any ideas or comments on the winged angel or chalice symbol"? That is an interesting question. Hopefully someone can shed some info on it.  :scratchchin: :question-marks:

Had to laugh at the Armadillo.  Made me think of a friend.  He lived in TX in the 1990s, and armadillos destroyed his lawn looking for food.

John woke one night and saw them.  He was ticked, grabbed a golf club, and ran outside in his underwear to teach the armadillos a lesson.  His wife said it was the craziest sight.  Armadillos apparently jump when frightened to avoid danger.

There's John outside at night in his undies wildly swinging a golf club with armadillos hopping around him.

When scared, I have seen them jump as high as nearly 3 foot in the air and are surprisingly fast on the move. :shocked:
