Item:143381472851Very Early, Heavy Antique Colonial House Fireplace Crane, HAND MADE BY COLONIAL BLACKSMITH DESCRIPTION: Scans show it all.....very heavy, hand made antique iron FIREPLACE CRANE, from an old collection that I recently acquired. MADE BY A COLONIAL BLACKSMITH. Very nice design and very nice, early eye appeal. You can readily see the effects of being made by hand and the hand pounding and work, etc. Was used, but shows its age well. A particularly early item and was hand made by a colonial blacksmith, made from a flat bar of iron. The 2 sides fit into the bricks or stones of the large, "walk-in" colonial fireplace when it was built. They then acted as hinges and it was free to rotate forward. It would hold a pot over the fire, then could be pulled forward to empty, stir, or remove the pot. The end of the horizontal bar has even been made with a "stop" at the end to prevent pots from slipping off. There would have only been 1 of these in each colonial house from 1720-1800, SO THEY ARE VERY RARE AS WELL AS VERY OLD. Measures 13 1/2" tall x 24" long. Bar width is around 1" wide and the whole piece is made of 3/8" thick material. A VERY NICE, RARE ITEM AND A SCARCE DECORATION AND COLLECTIBLE PIECE!!
