Antique Early American hand wrought iron bread peel c1800 for hearth oven cooking. Measures 44 inches long and 8 inches across. Wonderful original condition. A peel is a shovel-like tool used by bakers to slide loaves of bread and other baked goods into and out of an oven. With a flat carrying surface (like a shovel’s blade) for holding the baked goods and a handle extending from one side of that surface. The word presumably derives from the French ‘pelle’, which describes both a peel and a shovel. - See more at: http://www.coulborn.com/furniture-categories/metalwork-and-treen/iron-bread-peel/#sthash.ikFrKuHt.dpuf. v
