A Rare 18th C Hearthside Apple Roaster c 1740-1810 Hearthside roasting of apples was a popular and efficient cooking method allowing a main dish to cook simultaneously w/ dessert apples. This graceful roaster was designed to support three rows of apples. The maker cleverly enhanced the roaster's functionality by crafting both a fold-down carrying handle (photo 8) and a turnbuckle (photo 7) for hanging. Photos 5 & 6 show the single sides, separated at the bottom to form gently curved feet. The handle and iron cross supports are riveted into the sides (photos 10 & 11) creating a sturdy structure. A fine early decorative piece of American history for the country home and/or collector. 14" h x 14" w x 3" w
