Hi from SoCal
« on: February 07, 2020, 09:27:43 AM »
Hi from SoCal, been collecting for several years, mostly from local thrift shops.  Have a soft spot for old Descoware or Magnalite which can usually be had for a song out here.  Iron is hit or miss with miss being the case more often than not recently. 

I did just add this beauty to the collection; guessing it's early American (pre wagner/griswold).  Paid $6 at the local Salvation Army.  Which lately is a steal; they tend to price in the 15 to 20 range for iron - but it never lasts long even at that price.

On the hunt for an old quad griswold hotel waffle iron with burners.

East Texas extends a hearty "Welcome!".  Ain't the old bottom-gated pieces classy?  They are really nice looking and cook well, also.  [smiley=welcome.gif]

Glad your here, nice piece.
