Looking for the realised and estimated price?

Description: This is a blacksmith made colonial wrought iron heart decorated folk art open hearth fireplace shovel from New England circa 1700s for your consideration. The scoop of the wrought iron open hearth fireplace shovel has a tapered blade and turned up sides and back to pickup and keep red hot coals from spilling. The handle is made of a single piece forged wrought iron. The beginning of the wrought iron bar is flattened and attached to the scoop by two large wrought rivets. The other end of the handle is also flattened to form a grip for ease of handling. What makes this fireplace shovel so special is the decorative heart shaped handle. When hung on a wall the early shovel makes an early primitive statement piece. A wrought iron folk art open hearth fireplace shovel like this would have been given as a wedding gift and treasured over the centuries.

Condition Report: Excellent condition with age appropriate patina.__

Dimensions: 20 inches long and 5 inches wide.

Date: 1700s
