Early 18th Century Antique New England Iron Fireplace Trammel Chain Metalware

Description:

18th Century Colonial Era New England Wrought Iron Fireplace Trammel - Decorated with a Twist Design

A splendid example of period blacksmithing work this chain trammel dating from the mid to 18th century, circa 1730-1750, with similar examples being seen illustrated in numerous books documenting interior furnishings of the Colonial era.

A chain trammel served the purpose of suspending various articles of hearthware in an open cooking fireplace. The top (larger) hook of the piece would have been fitted on the interior of a brick or stone fireplace on the interior hook or lug pole. The bottom links of the chain would then be suspended into the hearth with the bottom rung of the piece being used to suspend itself on the handle of a period tea kettle, iron pot, or other cookware. The small hook adjacent to the hanging hook would be used to fit itself on the link of a chain, thus raising the height of the lower hook from the fireplace, this was all done in a primitive effort to regulate temperature. This example lacks an adjustment hook, or it may never had had one, being a free hanging piece.

As you can see the construction of this piece is outstanding. The blacksmith forging individual links on the chain.

Conditionon the piece is overall very good. There is some slight pitting and oxidation from age, else a very solid example with a wonderful patina.

Measures approximately 54" in length when fully stretched out, adjustable to suit the needs of the hearth if one can grab themselves a simple wrought iron "s" hook.

Up for a period of one week with and a low starting offer.
