17th century iron Potato Rake

17th century iron Potato Rake

Price: SOLD
Ref: 10376

A rare 17th century kitchen utensil: a fine quality and decorative potato rake crafted from iron.  One end is with ornamented handle with practical hanging hook whilst the other is of spatula form and would have been used to reach in to the kitchen range to 'rake' out the hot potatoes or to retrieve those cooked in the ashes.  An unusual item of social history, remaining in fine condition to delight the most discerning collector of early English metalware. Circa 1680.

H: 33cm (13.0")   W: 4cm (1.6")
