Paul: The enormous skillet would look nice beside the giant teapot made by the Vollrath Company (a local manufacturer) for the 1904 World's Fair. I can email you an image if you want one.

Most Excellent story about the event. Would love to know if the frying pans still exist.

Should have searched before posting...Found information on two Giant frying pans. The one from the Long Beach, WA event and one in Iowa. Neat stuff from days gone by

Here's a link to the image of the Vollrath tea pot. It's at the Missouri History dot org website:

Nit: that's a tea kettle, not a teapot.
