Griswold Skillets--Values vs. Prices?

kaleokahu | Mar 8, 2011 08:58 PM

Hey, here're a couple of questions for the CI cognoscenti:

I was in an antique market the other day that I don't get to a lot, and there seemed to be a large number of Griswold skillets, chicken fryers and miscellany, in a wide range of sizes. To me, this was notable for two reasons:

(1) Many of these pans already had the fabled "glass smooth" bottom texture and abundant-yet-homogenous seasoning; and

(2) They were surprisingly inexpensive (say, an average of $35).

Is this a good average price for a good, flat Griswold?

Oh, and another thing... The selection included some crepe-type griddles I've never seen before, and even a "Bacon & Eggs" rectangular griddle that had two preformed egg wells and a separate trough for frying bacon. Are these shapes anything special?
