Not the same kind of ladle, but Artitech does a nice slag-ladle load, complete with blocking.

And another great load:  refractory shipped on pallets, banded.  The steel industry and foundries went through refractory like you wouldn’t believe. 
There was a great “Mr. Plaster” load I made dozens of for this purpose.

They are indeed.  The refractory more often.
I’d venture two to several times a year, up to a couple years, but an on-going process, with so many ladles in play.
They were sometimes made on-site, but there were off-line makers, including Pugh, Treadwell, etc.
