DESCRIPTION

These very long handled heavy forks were used at open hearths and campfires for positioning the logs.

Hand wrought, blacksmith made from just one single piece of iron.  The iron was worked into triple tines at the forked end.  A handsomely shaped handle with fine 'notched' decoration just below the tines that extends downward to a squared shape before flattening out at the opposite end of the very long handle. Beautifully made and extremely well balanced it's beauty needs to be seen in your own hands.  The hammer strikes are clearly visible.  A wonderful primitive antique fireplace tool, of a good weight, this weighs 2-lbs 12 ounces.  

Size::  37-3/4" Long -   3-1/2" Across the Tines -  Weight 2-lbs. 12-Ounces

1" wide at hanging end - 3/4" thick at center


CONDITION

Very Good.  It's been well cared for.

The iron work shows expected heat pitting from use at the hearth and some light rust.
