KitchenMiscellaneous - 2Late 1800s to Early 1900sEating and CookingImplementsThese early kitchen eating and cooking implements are all in good condition, some with minor issues. The items in this listing fall intosix groupings as follows:
1) a skimmer for separating the cream from the milk, hence, "skimmed" or "skim" milk.Used when there were nocentrifuges.Approximate Measurements:5 1/8" at widestpoint. There is ahole for hanging the item. This piece could be handmade.
2) Black Spoon and Fork - probably for hearth cooking or for preparing meals for many on a wood stove.Approximate Measurements:Spoon - 13.76" long with hole in handle for hanging. The bowl of the spoon is deeper and the sides higher than most cooking spoons. Black finish.Fork - 14"long with hole in handle for hanging.
3) Metal finish fork and spatula - both have a bent-over and curled end that can be used to hang the implement. Most likely the fork was made by hand the the spatula was bought. We may beincorrect, but the marks of hand-making are all over the fork and not the spatula.Approximate Measurements:Spatula - 16" long - small dents on the end of the spatula from use.Fork - 15.5" long
4) Five (5) table knives,probably for "good" use, with handles made of bone. There is a group of 3 and a group of 2 in thisbatch. One can tell by the contour and color of the handles.Thesehandles areriveted on and therivet goes through the knife handle to the other side. Thecracks develop parallel to the longer edge of the handle. These knives are sharper than round-ended knives today, usually used for spreading. These were for "good" use with guests and forall kinds of food, including meat. These particular knives have some nicks on the rounded ends.Approximate Measurements:total length of knife - 9 3/4"length of blade - 5.5"
5) Small Wood-handled knife and fork. Knife marked on end with a cross and a notch. The handle sections of the knife areheld on by a band rather than a rivet. These were everyday knives and forks. The handles are wood. Approximate Measurements:Knife: 6 7/8" longFork: 3 prongs, 2rivets, 7 1/2"
