ThomasPowers Posted July 30, 2017 Share Posted July 30, 2017 American Heritage History of Colonial Antiques We just picked this up at the used bookstore for a Dollar, focused on American Colonial and the mid to north eastern seaboard for the most part. Mainly the fancier stuff but there is a couple of pages of smithed stuff that includes a very nice meat fork: it has 3 tines and the middle tine is made by elongating the tip of a heart which is forge welded between the other two tines. Very clean fine work! There is also a flipper with a piercework star in the working end. There is also a reproduction of a woodcut of a 17th century silversmith's workshop showing several block anvil large enough for ironwork!
