Dutch Oven at El Dorado County Historical Museum

Two weeks ago, while working on rolling stock for the El Dorado Western Railway Foundation, Keith took me inside the county museum to view a recently donated Dutch oven.

Here's a few photographs of the cast iron oven:

The oven measures about 9-1/2 inches in diameter and 4 inches deep. The only marking that I found is the number 8 on the lid.

The interior of the oven. Note that it need to be scrubbed and re-seasoned.

The underside of the oven.

The inside of the lid. Note the rust. The oven is in very good shape.

  1. Steve,
    The Dutch oven pictured looks very similar to a very early #8 griswold tight top like 1 that i own. but, i'm not sure.
