Is Le Creuset black interior non-stick or matte enamel?

I was given a great vintage LC skillet, but it has a black interior, and I am worried it is nonstick, which I choose not to use. Does anyone here know? It looks identical to the one in this photo

It is marked on the bottom under the flame enamel, has a wooden handle with a metal tip with an eye for hanging, and the number of the skillet is in a diamond shape. I contacted LC customer service, and they said if it is super shiny, which it's not, it was probably non stick, and if it is "porous," which again it doesn't seem to be, it is probably matte black enamel. Thoughts? Much appreciated.

  1. I had a similar pan many years ago. It should be the matte black enamel. I believe the non stick pans had more rounded corners on the frypans.
