A handsome and very heavy early open hearth fireplace trammel from America's Colonial Era, early to mid 1700's.

This one can be extended to a full 31".

Fine well fashioned Hole & Rod type trammel. The 'hole bar' has a handsome undulating shape along the sides, you can feel the blacksmiths hammer strikes to form this beautiful shape. Extremely heavy and thick the bar measures 18" long, 2" across and is 1/4" thick. Good deep curve at the top to hang over the lug pole and it has 7 holes to accept the rod along with the wide loop opening at the bottom.

The rod is equally heavy and well made with a good 'hook' at the top and a deep curled over curve at the bottom to hold even the heaviest of kettles. It measures 18" long and the hook at the bottom is 1-3/4" wide.

Good and heavy and sturdy and strong in perfect working condition.
