E18032 A miniature, French, cast iron flat iron. This iron is marked, in the casting, with a crest. This crest is like the crest of the Gendarmes which we have had, in the past, on larger flat irons. This would possibly have been made as a lace iron. It dates from c.1880. There is slight pitting to the metal, particularly on the base, where it has been on the heat, but otherwsie it is in good condition.

E18108 A fine quality, 19th century steel herb or vegetable chopper. This piece has the same type of handle that was used on saws of the period. Some of the saw makers made these fine steel choppers as a sideline but they are actually quite rare. We have had one previously which was incredibly ornate, with the blade incorporating birds and urns in a finely cut pattern. This is much more simple, although still very decorative. It is, however, still very finely made and it is in excellent condition. It has no manufacturers marks but it dates from c.1860.

E17965 A 19th century bubble and squeek chopper. Bubble and squeek, for those who are not familiar, is the left over potato and vegetable, from your Sunday dinner, which is thrown into a frying pan and fried up together. This chopper is designed so that you can chop the vegetables over the edge of the frying pan. This one dates from c.1860. It has a simple steel blade, and a turned wooden handle, and it is in very good condition.

E17980 A fabulous, 19th century, steel ice or sugar cleaver in the shape of a horse. Cleavers of this type were used in the confectioners' kitchens and have become very collectable as they were often made in interesting animal or even human forms. This horse dates from c.1870. The shape of the horse is really well formed and the piece has an attractive brass handle, which is attached by copper rivets. There is very slight pitting to the steel blade, from use, but this cleaver is generally in excellent condition and the blade is still very sharp.

E17963 An interesting, 19th century, steel goffering iron. This type of iron was used for ironing ribbons and lace. The steel rod was heated in the fire and then inserted into the cylindrical iron. The ribbons were pulled over the iron to take out any creases. This example is marked to the base, in the casting, 'A KENRICK & SONS'. Kenrick was a Birmingham manufacturer and the iron dates from c.1860. It is quite unusual to find one of these marked and it is also good to find it with the original heating rod. It is in very good condition.

E17908 An unusual pine hanging shelf for displaying a mortar and pestle, and cutlery. The design of this piece contains carvings which are peculiar to Normandy, in Northern France and it dates from c.1850. It is dispalyed with 12 pewter spoons, which are contemporary with the shelf, and a brass pestle and mortar which would be later, from the first quarter of the 20th centruy. It is an excellent display piece and would work equally well in a kitchen or dining room. The shelf is carved in pine and has a small, central draw for salt. There are 18 slots in the top shelf, for cutlery, and a further 14 spaces at the bottom of the rack. We have displayed 12 mid 19th. century pewter spoons, 8 of one type and 4 slightly different. These can be seen in the other images. The small brass mortar and pestle would have been used mainly for grinding peppercorns. Across the top of the shelf you can see what looks like a crack in the wood but this is actually the way the piece has been made in sections. It is all in very good condition and we are selling it complete with spoons and mortar and pestle.

E17743 A Victorian cast iron, box iron made by J and J Siddons of West Bromwich. The manufacturers mark is in the casting but, unusually, it is on the underside of the lid. You can see this in one of the images. In the casting on the top of the lid there is a patent number and this would date the iron to the last quarter of the 19th century. Inside the iron is a shaped, cast iron brick which would have been put on the fire. This would then be returned to the iron in order to heat it. The lid of the iron locks into place via a handle on the side and there is a steel heat shield which stops the wooden handle, and your hand, from getting too hot. There is some wear to the wooden handle on the locking mechanism but other than that the piece is in very good condition.

E17883 A very interesting steel vegetable or herb chopper from the latter part of the 19th century. This chopper is quite an unusual shape but it also has a very interesting mark. The word 'NOTTUST' is inlaid, in brass, into the steel near the handle. This is not a manufacturers mark, as I can find no reference to any company with this name. It is probably the name of the original owner and it could have been made for them as a one off by a local blacksmith. The handle is turned from oak and the steel blade has been hand forged. There is very minor pitting to the steel, as you would expect from use, but the piece is in very good condition.

A14011
A fantastic, 18th century, court kitchen, pestle and mortar on stand. The stand is turned from a single, solid piece of elm and it measures 67cm. (26 3/8") high by 35.5cm. (14") diameter at its widest part. There are various splits in the wood but this is inevitable due to the density and age of the piece. It has excellent colour and patination. The mortar is a dark grey marble and it measures 51.5cm (20 1/4") across by 28cm. (11") high. There are very minor chips to the marble, on the rim of the piece. There is a recess in the top of the stand and the mortar sits down into it. The total height, when the two pieces are together is 92.5cm. (36 1/2"). The pestle is made from boxwood and measures 50cm. (19 3/4") long by 9.5cm. (3 3/4") diameter at its widest part. There is minor cracking to the wood but the colour and patination is excellent. Overall, this is an exceptional item and it would make a very impressive feature in a large kitchen. £2250.

An impressive grey and white marble mortar with a double ended boxwood pestle. Date: Late 18th / early 19th century. Size: The mortar is 36.2cm. (14 1/4") across by 22.3cm. (8 3/4") high and the pestle is 43.7cm. (17 1/4") long by 8.2cm. (3 1/4") diameter at its widest part. The mortar is quite a standard shape with four lobes. The marble has very attractive grey and white veining and the boxwood pestle has excellent colour and patination. There is a small, steel plate inset on one side of the mortar. This can be seen in one of the images. This was possibly inserted to prevent the marble from cracking. There is also slight damage to one of the lobes. Otherwise the piece is in very good condition. £375.

E17654 An early, carved horn dessert spoon. This type of item is very difficult to date as they were made over a long period of time. However, going by the style, and also by the wear, and the distortion to the horn, it is probably from the mid to late 18th century. Size: 23cm. (9") long. This piece has been carved from a single section of horn and is simple in form. As previously mentioned, it has distorted over time and this gives the spoon a lot of character. It is in very good condition, with no cracks, and the horn has an interesting patina. £49. U.S.A.

D16869 A most unusual steel implement which was used for mulling wine or ale. Date: c.1860. Size: 41.3cm. (16 1/4") long. This piece is just a coil of steel on a long handle with a turned wooden grip. The coil has obviously been well used. It has been heated in a fire and then plunged into the liquid cooling it quickly. This is obvious from the nature of the wear to the steel. It has seen plenty of use but it is in good condition. £72. U.S.A.

D16823 A Victorian, cast iron box iron. Unmarked. Date: c.1880. Size: 13.3cm. (5 1/4") long by 8.6cm. (3 3/8") wide by 15.2cm. (6") high.

The handle is turned, in a pleasing shape, from rosewood and the slider has a simple hook as a grip. There is texturing to the steel on the slider, on the back of the iron, which is quite unusual. The piece is, overall, in very good condition. £72. U.S.A.

D16835 A Victorian, cast iron, iron stand with a turned wooden handle. Unmarked. Date: c.1880. Size: 26.3cm. (10 3/8") long by 9.3cm. (3 5/8") wide by 3.2cm. (1 1/4") high. The section which would take the iron is 14.6cm. (5 3/4") long by 9.3cm. (3 5/8") at its widest part. This piece has an attractive, arts nouveau style design in the casting. The handle is quite chunky, it is turned from mahogany and there is a brass collar which attaches it to the cast iron. The handle has a piece missing, by the collar, where it has probably been burned by an iron but other than this it is in very good condition. £49. U.S.A.
