Accessories:  Pipe Tongs / Ember Tongs
Iron Pipe Tongs: Very finely wrought, excellent surface. Each handle element has a curl at terminus- and the tension bar has a slight flip. The "tamper" is the pivot point and shows slight hammer marks on the end of the tenon. The "pick" serves as a fulcrum guide, is slightly bent, but it works quite well. Neither penny is round- both very worn- but complete.
A very fine example of 18th c. New England iron work.

18th c. American. 20.5 in. long, 4 in. wide.


Wrought iron, Blacksmith made  inches: 21 long, 4 wide  $2400
