This is a museum quality display piece, but it could easily still be used. With a hand wrought bail which was threaded at the ends and hand peened swiveling hanging hook. Dates to 1860-1900 making it roughly 120-150 years old (Give or take a decade). Ring and bail were designed for cooking over an open or hearth fire. Piece has bottom gate and three stubby feet for stabilizing it when put down. Cooking surface is remarkably good with an almost glassy feel over much of it. There are some rougher spots where casting flaws and some patches of pinpoint pitting has occurred, but a remarkable piece in using shape. Would be amazing for display or even for re-enactors. Could be used on a stove. Bottom has pitting from wood fire use.
14” 1/2 diameter.
Cleaned via lye method, hand buffed and seasoned with 3 layers of non-GMO canola oil.
No cracks, chips. Not designed for stove use and even with the feet it would have wobble on a sheet of glass. Cooking surface is very good, not quite glassy, but outstanding for the age and type of piece. Some pinpoint pitting in patches and a few casting flaws on the cooking surface. Would improve greatly with use.
As always we are happy to take back pieces if you are not 100% satisfied. (Please see return policy)
