Blacksmith Made Hand Wrought
Open Hearth Fireplace
Very Long Handle -
These very long handled heavy forks
were used at open hearths and campfires for positioning the
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.
