I'm certainly no expert on old cast iron, but I've not heard of them.

Here is a pic of one I found, it says Renfrow Ware L.A in a search they seem to think the LA is for Los Angeles, not Louisiana.










I know it's not much help, but at least it's some pics Frightened

Thanks N4TWZ for posting the pics.

I came across one the other day for $20. I think it was a 10". I walked away because my better half was with me and I am getting out of control with my CI addiction. I am spending more time collecting than cooking.

Should I go back and see if it is still there? Shhh He's not going to like that!

On Saturday I picked up 2 skillets and he wasn't too happy about that. I was able to get away with it because they were sizes I did not have yet.

I already have two 10" DO's one with and one without legs, as well as one each 12" & 12" Deep camp ovens that I have not used yet.

If I see a moment of weakness in him, I will talk to him again. After 25 years of marriage, I have learned there are some things just not worth fighting about.

If it was an "investment" or worth a lot more, I might have had a better chance.

Thanks to everyone for their input.

The fact that it is L.A. rather than LA. would support the Los Angeles theory. They seem to be available, not hugely sought after. At least, not commanding a very tall price.

J2, I wish that the only thing I had to worry about my wife sneaking in the house was cast iron. It's alot cheaper than jewelry. And I could use it too. BIGDADDY

Wife and I made an agreement long ago we call the $50.00 rule. If it was an item or items we wanted and it was under $50.00 there was no discussion and no reprisal. However if the expendature was over $50.. we would confer and jointly decide if it was a good idea or not.
Has worked well for us Thumbs Up

That's a great plan, bobhenry. For us, it's more like $20 these days, but it still keeps harmony in the house where the checkbook is concerned. Thumbs Up

Used to have the same rule, but like Cliff, the bar has been lowered.

I am also a reformed "pack-rat" (genetic thing I think), or at least I am trying. So I need to know I will have a place to put something before I bring it into the house. I rely on him to keep me in check.

You know, it's funny. I was gung ho for a bit when it came to cast iron. But I'm a practical type. If I'm not going to use it, or have a use for it, I get tired of it pretty quickly. I built up quite a collection, thanks alot to the red and blue books and being a member of WAGs a year or so ago. But times changed like they always do, and realized I don't want to just collect cast iron. So I started the process of downsizing alot of it. Keeping all of my grandparents/great grandparents stuff and my parents skillet and dutch oven (as in house style) and getting rid of the rest. Having 10 #8 skillets just isn't appealing to me anymore. Now, I do use ALOT of different DO's. So I'm still collecting them. Hell, I'd love to get about 5 more Wagner camp ovens (the ones I do believe Griswold made for them, was after thier merge I believe?). But still adding to my CC collection. But as some know, I do alot of big camps. Funny how sometimes you realize that 4 16" DO's ARE NOT enough to help with the feeding of alot of people.

Hmmmmmmm, maybe I need to get J2 over to my place and set out all my Wagners. Wink
