Seller: blackbuggyantiques (2,732) 100%, Location: Womelsdorf, Pennsylvania, Ships to: US, Item: 273587613917 Damaged Broiler Hand Wrought Iron Hearth Cooking Tool Lancaster County Pennsylvania Rare Antique Pennsylvania Forged Iron Primitive Hearth Cooking Tool - Hanging Broiler - Circa 1750 Damaged In Need Of Repair DESCRIPTION A Primitive Early Hearth Broiler A wonderful primitive hearth cooking tool, and a rare form. It is from the Colonial Period, an American Forged Iron Broiler dating to the Mid 1700's. It is Blacksmith made hand-wrought iron work and a real beauty. It has a fine spiral twist to the high arched handle with large swiveling hanging trammel loop and both straight and "wavy-bacon" grills. This one has seen much use over the years since it was made in the mid 1700's and continued in use even with some damage. One of the arms that attached the spiral twist handle to the broiler face had come loose from the hammered rivet that held it securely in place (as can still be seen on the opposite end of the handle). A wire was wound around the arm and passed through the opening in the plate to hold it in place. Additionally one of the "wavy bacon" grills had also worn away at the edge of the outer circle of the broiler face. You can see where it was repaired at one time, but had given way again. Weight is 4-lbs. Size: Broiler Face is 14" x 14-1/2" across - 12-1/4" high to top of hanging loop CONDITION As described above. Plenty of wear. The iron work shows a fabulous patina of age and use at the hearth with expected heat pitting and rust. Region of Origin: Lancaster County, Pennsylvania, Size Type/Largest Dimension: 14", Style: Americana, Listed By: BlackBuggyAntiques, Material: Hand Forged Iron, Original/Reproduction: Original, Date of Creation: Pre-1800, Type: Hanging Broiler, Color: Black
