A couple-three years ago I found this gridiron on eBay:
Now, it’s quite similar to those offered by Historic Housefitters
and Landis Valley Museum, so it’s possibly just a reproduction.
At the same time, however, it’s rather uneven and wobbly and
looks handmade, so it may be a bona fide antique. It’s very like
these authentic examples on display at Colonial Williamsburg:
The one on the right has the same number of crossbars (seven).
They all appear to have some sort of keyhole handle. And the one
below has legs that’re straight like the ones on mine:
In any case, I have fun using it to roast fish, chicken, and more.
Another nice little treasure. Yep, sure is amazing what can be
found on good ol’ eBay. HUZZAH!
