This late 18th Century Gate Marked long griddle has been restored from over a century of use, and is now back to life in fantastic working condition for you or as a gift for the home chef. It does not sit perfectly flat so take that in consideration when buying. The surface has sand shift marks resulting in a natural patina from its casting, giving it some amazing character!

The handles sit off the surface so they are easier to handle when over two burners. The bottom surface has some pitting from over the years of use which is very typical of these old workhorses. It's often referred to as a fish fry, or sad iron heater, as is indicative of its function, and we've used them for conversation starting center pieces as well! Perfect for cooking bacon, pancakes, or other proteins. It has been stripped using a lye bath and electrolysis, and has been seasoned 3 times with our oil blend. Ready to use!

DISCLAIMER: We have prepared this piece to be ready to use or displayed in a collection. All pieces are vintage, and therefore are not in perfect condition. Their history of use means small marks and inconsistencies, including residual carbon, which we feel give them a special charm. All items are sold as is, and we have done our best to present them as such. Please review all pictures and ask for further clarification if needed. Thank you! - Cast & Clara Bell
