Colonial Wrought Iron Meat Skewer

This is a wonderful example of Early American wrought iron.  This 18th C. hand wrought meat skewer has a double rest with shoe feet so that the meat could be flipped.  The handle of the skewer has a fancy "twist" design that terminates with a finely curled rat tail.  Wonderful surface.  The previous owner did apply some varnish to preserve the piece.  But it has worn down and has only a slight sheen.  Measuring  14 1/4" in length.  Purportedly purchased from James Sorber of Pottstown, PA in the early 80s.
