Pennsylvania Hand Forged
Wrought Iron Hearth Utensil
- Long Handled
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
Completly strong, no breaks or splits.
All one piece!

Very Good. It's been well cared
The iron work shows expected heat pitting
from use at the hearth and some light rust.
