Antique Colonial Era Kitchen
Small Bowl Tasting
This is an authentic Colonial Era circa mid 1700's wrought
iron tasting ladle.
A handsome small ladle with a deep bowl. It was worked from
just one single piece of iron. Used for sampling, tasting while cooking at
the open hearth.
Well designed with a nice offset to the handle where it meets
the bowl. The bowl was shaped over a mold, beaten by the smithy into this
small round deep shape. The bowl is just 2-1/4" across and 1" deep. A beautifully
designed handle that is round then flattened and narrowed ending in a nicely
curved hanging loop.
Well worn showing plenty of evidence of age and use and still
in excellent condition with a handsome patina. No thin spots, no breaks in
the metal, no repairs.
And a wonderful small size!
A beauty for your early cooking utensil
