Griswold Quaker Ware Dealer Ads

Griswold Quaker Ware Dealer Ads

One handy way to determine the pieces in a particular line of vintage or antique cast iron cookware is to get your hands on an old catalog or ads for the product. Larry and Marg O’Neil have a tremendous amount of cast iron and cast aluminum ephemera, which I happily delved into on my March 2019 visit.

A reddit user 1 had asked about a piece of Quaker Ware he had recently acquired. Marg and Larry O’Neil have the full set of Griswold Quaker Ware.

Marg had recently written an article about Quaker Ware for the Griswold & Cast Iron Cookware Association’s newsletter (which I reprinted with permission here), and I had scanned some dealer ads for Quaker Ware from Larry’s collection. From that information, I was able to tell the reddit user when Quaker Ware was made and what was special about it.

Here are some of the Quaker Ware dealer ads from Larry O’Neil’s ephemera collection. You can see from these old ads just what exactly was encompassed in the Griswold Quaker Ware line.
