This old blacksmith made scraper, chopper, came from Austria with the great grand parents of the woman who sold it to me. She swears it was made not later than 1810. I’ve never seen one this large, or made quite this way. It’s just huge.
Blade is just a hair under 14” long, 2” 7/8 wide, handle just over 17”, overall about ~ 9 high if standing.
As always we are happy to combine shipping, as well as take back pieces if you are not satisfied. (Please see return policy)
Can you imagine making your morning toast using this old frontier/hearth toaster? Slice your bread and put the slices into the rotating end piece, sit it down near your cookfire and wait until one side was done before turning the end piece 180 degrees to toast the other side. Pretty darn cool. This one predates the invention of the household stove in the 1830s. A blacksmith made piece, this probably belonged to a fairly well off family who had the wherewithal and room to own a gadget like this back at a time when most folks were toasting their bread in a skillet.
Sold unrestored in perfect working shape. This one would be great for historical reenactment, or used as a display piece.
$225 shipping included in price.

Ok, this lid probably belonged to an old camp oven made by an unknown maker. What makes this piece so special is the interior. Take a look at the inside of this lid. See all those weird pieces? Those weird designs? That’s all the evidence you need to know that yes – some manufacturers, didn’t just pour molten metal into their molds, but actually threw bits of scrap into the space and filled around it with molten iron. That would have resulted in the need to melt less iron, and use less fuel, or find less high quality ore. Basically it saved money.
Not surprisingly not a lot of lids like this seem to have survived. They probably by in large weren’t as structurally sound. It also makes pieces like this kind of neat and well worth collecting.
Aside from the raised #8,and the interior gate mark there are no indications as to who might have made the piece.
We cleaned the piece with lye, and coated with four fresh coats of non-gmo canola oil.

This is a cool old cast iron and steel can opener c. 1890. This one isn’t a mystery like the last one was, but it’s just as cool. But this fish head type can opener features a marked blade saying: “Belmont” Pat Feb 11, 1890.
Haven’t been able to find out a lot about this company, but it’s a very pretty piece. Iron handle is 6” long, steel blade protrudes another 1/4” beyond that.
Sold as is, as this is a collector piece, but it can be restored if you so desire.
$50 shipping included in price. Restoration would be extra.
another non-iron but cool item
This is an old vintage enameled metal thermal chest good for hot and cold food made by K & M (Knapp and Monarch) of St Louis. It’s a cool old piece of vintage that probably still works better than stuff made today. But this one really needs to on display somewhere – it’s just so cool.
Seals are old (hardly surprising) but this appears to still be fully functional.
18” 1/2 long x 10” wide, 14” tall.
This is being sold as is. Body has some rust, some scratches to the enamel – it looks as vintage as it is.
Can you imagine getting your deli items prepared with this old time hand cranked deli slicer? This is a piece which I bet could tell some stories. Admittedly I’m presuming this was made to slice meats and cheese based on my research, but it could easily have been for potatoes and vegetables.
features a counter clamp to fasten it in place, a rotary head that has four razor blade like blades, a hand crank for turning the rotary head and a push plate to guide your item to the blades and not risk those delicate little fingers. There definitely was some art to using one of these.
I find this one to be just an amazing little bit of historical ingenuity. While it’s perfectly usable, it would make an amazing display piece too.
Sold in as found condition (everything works).
$65 shipped (FedEx with insurance) for $25 additional we can restore it for you if you’d like (Takes 7-14 days before we can ship).

An older Griswold 4inch stove damper P/N 523 in impeccable shape – doubt you could find a better example.
Marked (side 1) “GRISWOLD, 523, AMERICAN, 4 IN” (side 2) “REVERSIBLE, PAT’D July 20, 1915., STEEL SPINDLE”.
This is definitely an older one from before the design of the coil handle.
Handles and nub are wood. As always cleaned and seasoned.
A cool little collectors piece.
American (by Erie – pre Griswold) stove damper #7.
One of the harder to find dampers by size. Marked “AMERICAN, ERIE, PA.” “541″ on one side, “7. PAT’D MAR. 23, 1875, MAR. 13, 1877, APR. 20, 1880″ on the other.
A very old piece of pre Griswold Americana.
Sold as found.
