Unidentified vintage cookware

eclaire | Mar 1, 2008 11:35 PM

Just purchased 5 vintage grey cast iron pans --Made In France ----but I don't see another name on them --- the lids to the sauce pans are also skillets. Does anyone know what company might have made them?

One sauce pan has the # 22 on the bottom and uses a skillet which is about 8 inches in diameter for a lid ---the pan holds around 2 quarts and the skillet about 1 1/2 pints. Enameling in the sauce pan bottom has wear--wear around rim mainly where the skillet rests as the lid. The other sauce pan has # 18 on the bottom and uses a skillet about 6 3/4 inches in diameter for the lid---# 18 pan holds about 1 quart and the skillet lid approx. 1 pint. Enameling is worn in the sauce pan bottom and some wear around the rim mainly where the skillet lid rests. # 23 skillet has a grey interior, is about 9 inches in diameter and around 9 5/8 inches across at the outside of the double pour lips --- holds almost 1 1/2 quarts.
