No. 8 Wagner Ware Chicken Fryer Skillet deep

Won on Ebay of April 15, 2013 for $34.99 plus shipping for $14.80 from Wildwood, Pennsylvania. Sold by Scott known on ebay as smilekc.

I wrote to Scott for any history and he responded that he “bought this skillet at of all places a car parts flea market!! A guy in his 70’s had it along with piles of antique car parts. He was extremely grumpy, so he didn’t offer any details of how long he had it. It was in the Ohio town of Canfield. It didn’t get too far from home, Sidney, Ohio, home of Wagner is a few hours drive away. The owner was an Ohio resident, I don’t think he was too far from home at the flea market. I’ve had it for a year. I have a small collection of cast iron cookware, but I have a 1 year rule. If I haven’t cooked with it in 1 year of taking ownership, I sell it.”

Made between 1935 and 1959 per the Cast Iron Collector as it has the stylized logo.
