DESCRIPTION

From a local Lancaster County Pennsylvania Estate, this is a blacksmith made one-piece hand forged Colonial Era antique wrought iron hearth cooking tool from the mid 1700's.  Exceptionally long handled and quite primitive in design, it was used in Colonial times at a big open hearth fireplace for toasting bread or small pieces of meat. This was made from just one single piece of forged iron.  It has double tines and a nicely shaped handle with a fine curl to the very end and a small twist along the length. When placed flat, the very tips of the tines are raised off the surface.

Completly strong, no breaks or splits.  All one piece!

A Colonial Era Pennsylvania Hearth Cooking Tool to add to your Collection!

Size::  31-1/2" Length -   1-1/2" Across the Tines

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.
