C.1780-1820 Tin Biscuit Oven - Warming Oven - Early Fireplace Hearth Cooking :
Up for offer is a rare to find late 18th-early 19th century tin reflector biscuit oven.The oven would be put into the large fireplace or beehive oven on the hot coals to bake muffins breads or to warm food. The once reflective inner surface would help cook the items evenly The oven does not have the tray for baking any longer but any small bake sheet would work if you are into colonial hearth cooking. The lid lifts off and is held on by hand tinsmithed tabs. Construction is wire rolled frame and hand forged fasteners on the handles. It measures 12" across the top, is 13 high in the front and 12" deep. This type of early tin oven is pictured in "Early American Furnishings" by George C. Neumann. I have included his picture of a similar oven and description in my pictures. Was purchased at a estate sale at an early home in Massachusetts. Any questions please feel free to ask.
