This is a really great quality pair of cast-iron pans! The base of the pans are marked ‘Belgium’, along with the letters ‘FE’ (chemical symbol for iron). There’s no maker’s mark per se, but looking at the style and quality of the pans, I’d guess that these pans are from Descoware, a Belgian company who were bought out by Le Creuset in the 1960s. The pans have some light scratches to the white enamel on the inside of the pans, and it looks like one of the handles has been slightly burned at some point, but on the whole the pans are in excellent condition.
An attractive and top quality pair that are well worth the money (especially when you look at the prices of new Le Creuset pans!).
