RARE 17th century English or Dutch hand forged brass salamander. Used as a hearth cooking spatula when needed, the salamander was primarily a browning iron holding a dish above the flame for the final touch or heated to red hot in the fire, then held above a roast or a custard to brown the surface. By one estimate, for every 1,000 peels or spatulas, perhaps one salamander survives. Measures 12.75 inches long and 3.5 inches across its flat serving end.
