Let me be fair, this is a really amazing piece of iron and I’m not sure what it actually is, but the person I look to when I need more knowledge of a piece of unusual iron believes that this is a bread pan, and that actually makes sense. Could it be something else? yep, it almost seems drawer like to me and the enameled interior makes me wonder if it was a catch basin for under an old block ice refrigerator, but even I will defer to greater expertise until we prove something about it one way or the other, thus it’s a bread pan.
It’s in remarkable shape with an intact enameled/porcelain coating which shows only the lightest of crazing (the mosaic like pattern in the finish), is beautifully and delicately cast, cleanly marked and has two elongated bar style feet to raise the main pan just off the surface on which it rests. Shape is a half oval with a squared end with handle on the other side. There is what appears to be a pour spout on one end.
Markings: “No 1” on the end near the single handle.
Handle to spout length 13”. 7” 1/2 across 3” high.
Sold as found.
No cracks, chips, wobble, when tested on a sheet of glass. Cooking surface is enameled with no cracks or chips.
As always we are happy to take back pieces if you are not 100% 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.

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.

here is another stove broiler, or maybe it was meant to be used on a grill(?). Heavy and rough cast – it features an interior that is just over 12″ x 7″ with a handle of just under 7″
There are a series of numbers on the underside of the handle but they are hard to read, (8868? maybe)
Oversized so shipping is a bit more.
Cleaned (lye method) and seasoned lightly with non-GMO canola oil.
$20 + $20 for shipping (included in price)
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).
Some of you may not know this, but I love old kitchen knives. Old carbon steel blades were probably some of the best ever made, they stayed sharp, were easy to hone, and cut better than almost anything made today. Most professional chefs, love and pamper their carbon steel blades – especially as modern versions of these can be $150-400 each.
These have been cleaned, restored and sharpened professionally. As they are used they will develop a nice patina (will look a bit like a dulling of the blade).
This one is an old vintage butchering knife by an unknown maker. Overall length is 17″ 1/4 inches, 11″ 1/4 of that being blade. scales (handles) are very nice and clean. Blade is razor sharp.
Carbon steel knives do require a tiny bit more upkeep than stainless as they will rust or discolor if not cleaned and dried after use, but that’s even easier maintenance than cast iron so I have no doubts you are up to it.
