This cast iron skillet has a rather interesting look to it as it is dimpled around the outside of it. It has no makers mark on it and it is a very heavy. My husband's grandparents bought it at either a yard sale or flea market and now it has been given to us. There is a lid that was also given to us with the skillet but does not match the skillet. It does fit it very nice along with a couple of our other cast iron pieces. The lid itself is heavy enough that when you go to lift it off of the skillet you think it has gotten stuck but it hasn't. I hope you have found this to be an interesting skillet.
