This is a pair of antique rare early colonial blacksmith wrought iron open hearth spit jacks from New England circa 1700s.ææ During the 18th century, meals were cooked in the hearth or fireplace, and cooking pots and pans were designed for use in large open hearths.

Colonial Painted Dovetailed Spice Chest Ca 1730s
This is a colonial grain painted white pine dovetailed Chippendale eight drawer spice chest from New England circa 1730s. Spice chests would not be found in the average colonist's household, only those that were well furnished and fairly prosperous. They were generally part of the parlor furniture and were used for the storage of valuable jewelry, silver spoons, gold buttons, silver shoe buckles, ivory combs, spectacles, pincushions or a piece of lace as well as nutmeg, cloves, ginger and allspice. Popular in the 18th century, wood graining is a decorative technique in which paints and glazes are used to imitate the appearance of fine wood. The spice chest has eight drawers that are divided and dovetailed. The spice chest has a dovetailed body and the only nails are on the two board back. The spice chest sits on scrolled bracketed legs and the front and sides are aproned. The hand graining on the spice chest has a nautical theme, which would be typical for 18th century New England pieces. The hand graining on front and side aprons is a shell design pattern. The hand graining on the top, sides and drawer fronts is a tiny and close ocean wave pattern. The body of the spice chest is handmade of New England white pine. The drawers are handmade of walnut wood. The pulls do not appear to be original. North Bayshore Antiques
