Up for auction are 2 Gatemarked Cast Iron Lone Star Pie Baking Dish c1803. They are seasoned and ready for use or display. I scoured the web and the only info I could find is from a fellow ebayer who’s selling one. Here’s a copy and paste from their listings description of what they found out.
“I Speculate it was Made in 1803
as There are 17 Dots Around the Star
Traditionally that Indicated the Number
of States in the Union until Many More
States were Admitted and the
Number Reverted Back to 13 for the
Original 13 Colonies
This is a Whimsey Type Piece that
Was Never in Production
Many of the Iron Workers would Make
Bowls or Cups or Pie Pans After Hours
for Friends and Loved Ones
This is Very Likely One Such Piece
Rim Diameter is 8 3/4 inches
Depth is 1 3/4 inches
Base Diameter is 6 inches
