This the rare top skillet for Griswold's hammered finished No 8 (2028) bottom skillet. The bottom skillet also uses the more common 2098 cover as well.

But the 2040 cover is the one you want! The cooking surface has very fine patches of etching from corrosion and light utensil scores. These are undetectable as you glide your fingers over near glass smooth surface.

This cover sits dead flat on a polished granite surface. No chips, cracks or repairs and does not spin. Item was stripped down to bare metal using collector approved lye bath and electrolysis treatments. This process ensures the removal all residue from previous use making it safe to use once more. Item is lightly seasoned with one round of Crisco at 450 for 1 hours.

This item was photographed in very bright light to highlight fine details. Under these lighting conditions, item may take on a brown color. Items are much darker under normal light. Photos are part of the item's description. Please use them for a clearer understanding of items overall condition.
