The "Best Made" like of holloware was made by Griswold back in the 30's and 40's on behalf of Sears and Roebuck department stores. Department stores were a recent phenomenon in the 30's where you could "one stop shop" anything from hardware to appliances, to tires. The idea of a convenient and comfortable place to shop was a part of the American lifestyle.

This Best Made waffle iron, with MATCHING tall base is fully restored and ready to use. The base of the iron was originally finished with what is referred to as "Japanning". Japanning is a heavy black paint, similar to enamel so its tough to remove. When it was new, japanning would have a glossy sheen to it. We tried to keep some in tact because we feel it adds to the story of the piece. Its a wonderful piece and an uncommon one to have!

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
