Hand forged antique lead smelting ladle from the Civil War era. Measures 17-3/4" long. 14-1/2" long handle with the "spoon" portion of the ladle measuring 3-3/8" x 3-5/8". The handle of the ladle was forged to create a loop at the top for hanging. The spoon has some erosion on one edge.
This is an unusual and rare find and came to us from the home of an antique collector. Perfect addition to your Civil War era collection or hang on your wall to add to the rustic look of your room.
A couple of the photos show additional items which were purchased from the estate at the same time as the ladle. Some are listed and some are not. If you are interested in those items as well please contact us for more info.
Your purchase will include the item as shown in the photos (ladle only) and described above. Any props used in the photos are not included. We welcome any questions about the vintage and antique items on our site. Please use the contact form button on our front page (bottom left).
All items in our inventory are stored in a climate controlled and smoke-free environment. All items sold are vintage or antique and we cannot vouch for their life or storage prior to arrival in our hands.
