    Please note all our pieces unless marked otherwise are fully restored and seasoned.  Just wash them and start cooking.

    This is a round rimmed kettle with a great shape, New England style ears, D shaped legs, and a a hand wrought bail.  These features date the pot to between 1830-1860.  It is bottom gated and a beauty to look at.  This one was made so that it could be used on a wood stove, which you can tell as the rounded bottom actually extends to below the legs which were to meant to sit on the stove top.   This piece is really more of a display piece than a user although it certainly can be used.  Interior is heavily pitted.

    Unmarked.

    10” 3/8 diameter, roughly 7’ 1/2 tall.

    Stripped to bare iron using lye method, hand buffed and seasoned with 3 layers of non-GMO canola oil.

    No cracks, chips.  Designed to sit on legs in a wood stove.  Interior is heavily pitted.  It could be used, but this one is more of a display piece in my opinion.

  • Item 1133

    Unrestored.  This one was lightly cleaned so as not to damage original seasoning and a new layer of seasoning was added for additional protection.

    This is a old spider skillet with the round bottom a type that was popular until just after the Civil war.   Bottom gate marked, sits on three stubby legs.  Small hanging hole.   This one is a little deeper than the ones you usually see.  Condition of the interior is remarkable – smooth as glass with only some casting voids as flaws.

    Marked #10

    11’ diameter.

    cleaned so as not to damage original seasoning and a new layer of seasoning was added for additional protection.

    No cracks, may be some minor edge chipping on the handle but i think it is casting flaw.  Sits on it’s legs.  Cooking surface is just stunningly smooth with only a few casting voids marring the perfection.

    These are works of art.  These are works of art.  Very finely cast with incredible detail.

    You do find some wonderful cast iron things when you go picking and today I’ll be listing three old pipe rests, which honestly will make the most amazing spoon rests.  These are 125-150 years old each.  This one is in the design of a man smoking a pipe with excellent detail.  Casting quality is extraordinary.  These were small lot poured rather than mass produced.

  • Item 1082

    This is a old tool for making cast iron cookware and other ironware.  This was meant to be used to pack the sand around the form to get a nice tight fit so that when the form was removed you’d be left with a sand mold into which to pour the molten iron.  I believe the wood is maple but I am certainly not an expert in wood identification.

    Unrestored.  Sold as found.

  • Item 1081

    Sometimes we find something that isn’t iron that we just can’t resist.  This antique nut cracker which was made between the Victorian and art deco age was one of those things.  It’s an amazing little piece with a great patina that can still be used and shows amazing craftsmanship.

    I didn’t find any markings on it, but that doesn’t mean that there aren’t I may have just missed them (but I doubt it)

    Unrestored.  Sold as found.

    Some of you may not know this but I love old kitchen knives.  Old carbon steel blades were probably some of the best blades ever made for kitchen use.  They keep an edge well, are easy to touch up with a steel (or ceramic), and cut better than almost anything made today.  Most professional chefs, love and pamper their carbon steel knives as lesser replacement knives can cost anywhere from $150-500 each.

    I can’t tell if this is bakelite or bone, but this is a very cool knife with a great high carbon steel blade, decorative ferrule with a flower motif and a blade with built in bolster.  This is a fancy knife, certainly not a common kitchen user.

    Knife features  hidden tang, Bakelite or bone handle, ferrule, with a 6” 1/2 blade (called 7” in the trade)with small bolster.  . Ready for use.

    This knife has been professionally restored,  polished and sharpened it is RAZOR SHARP.  It has some nicks and scars from use.

    *High carbon steel knives are highly sought after knives loved by professional and home cooks alike due to the quality of the steel, the edge it maintains and the hardness that is not matched by other knives.  If you don’t believe me, take a look the opinions of Alton Brown.  Please note these are NOT stainless steel knives, they do require a little bit of care (prompt washing and drying after use, occasional sharpening, etc), but hey, if you can maintain a cast iron pan you’ll find this a piece of cake.  Over time they will develop a patina, and even stain.  But they are probably the best quality steel knives you’ll ever use.

    This one is very special and made in style that was popular during and just after the Civil War.   That said, I think this is a kitchen knife but when I hold it in my hand I’m just not sure.  Could this have been a military utility knife?  I lean towards kitchen because of the bolster (and the fact there is no hand guard) but I’m just not sure.

    Knife features  full tang, original wood scales, double riveted blade and ferrule with bolster  with a 5” blade.  Rivets are brass and decorative in nature – I can’t swear it but I think they have images stamped in them.  Scales (handles) that appear to be walnut (but full disclosure is that my wood identification power is spotty so please check the pictures). Ready for use.

    This Knife has been professionally restored,  polished and sharpened it is RAZOR SHARP.  It has some nicks and scars from use.

    Primitive and possibly home made butcher knife with 7” blade.  Nice blade.  Great hand feel.   Feel the history.  Design is pre 1900.
