A Fine Antique Brass Wafer Press Wrought Iron Folk Art Designs NR 18th 19th C

Description:

A Great Early American Antique Cast Brass and Wrought Iron Wafer Press with Great Designs!

Wonderful example of an earlywafer press, crafted by a skilled artisan working with both brass and wrought iron work to create a wonderful utilitarian object with a great folk art quality.

A press such as this would have been used at the hearth for cooking small dessert wafers, often served alongside fruit and cream.

Small amounts of batter would have been placed between the brass pans. The piece would then have been inserted directly into the flames of a fire to cook them.

Take a moment to click on the individual images and you'll see you can enlarge them for details of the specific design qualities and construction. Thanks!

Note the pans have both gridded patterns and whimiscal designs. The piece was crafted to produce three individual wafers. The great designs being typical of the style of the period. Each wafer the piece would produce would end up measuring about 2" in diameter - Note one of the patterns even has a center flower design!

Overall the piece measures 19" in length, as such we are quoting shipping with a large flat rate box.

Some very slight pitting to the iron.Wonderful article of period hearthware that's certain to be a compliment to any collection on the topic!

Up on a THREE Day sale with ! Thanks for visiting us!
