Early American 18th century New England long handled hearth cooking skillet, also called a spider, circa 1780. Excellent original condition. This a very rare piece because of its unusual size. It measures 57.5 inches long, with a 15 inch pan. The pan was hand welded to the shaft by a blacksmith.
I got a chair from my grandmother with carved dragons on it. After searching everywhere, I found the same chair on your website. I thought it looked Asian, but had no idea how valuable it is! I almost sold it to a friend for a hundred bucks. I am so glad I used your site to learn how much it's worth! Your price guide is such a great tool! Thanks Again!!
