Neighboured

Neighboured describes the condition of a skillet that has been thinned by paring away the cardboard backing.

This treatment of skillets was heavily practised by Peter Neighbour. Other collectors have also adopted the practice.

Neighboured skillets are considered to be rendered damaged and incomplete. It is on a par with cutting or trimming matchbox labels.

This term was coined by Kevin McCarthy.
