Museum quality historical iron. Made between 1820-1850 this piece is at least 160 years old and could be as old as 220 years old. this appears to be a transition piece – hanging so that it could be used over a hearth fire, but with a deep wide rim that would allow it to sit inside a stove eye on an early wooden stove. This is a deep skillet/kettle – bowl-like with a bottom gate. Has a blacksmith wrought bail, and New England style ears. Slightly rounded bottom with no legs. Not surprising due to the age (and casting method) there are some casting flaws and the exterior bottom shows light pitting from wood stove use. Very usable – but a real gem for display. Has a nice rim “7/8 wide around the outer edge.
Cleaned via lye method, hand buffed and seasoned with 3 layers of non-GMO canola oil.
No cracks, chips. Not designed for stovetop use but for hanging or sitting in a stove eye. Cooking surface has casting flaws and tool marks.
As always we are happy to take back pieces if you are not 100% satisfied. (Please see return policy)
