A fine quality Victorian brass spit and bracket, with an earlier steel and brass meat hook. We are selling this group of items as a set as they make such a fabulous display when hanging in a fireplace. Starting at the top, the bracket is a very attractive example dating from c.1860. It has a sliding hook so that the spit can be moved closer to, or away from, the fire. The spit is one of the less common types. It is circular, rather than cylindrical, and the face of the spit is marked, in the casting 'E.B. BENNETT & SONS SOLE MANUFACTURERS T. RESTELL'S PATENT WARRANTED'. All of this is around a raised, central section which is cast with a lion and unicorn and the latin phrase 'DIEU ET MON DROIT'. This is the Royal Coat of Arms for the monarch of the U.K. This also dates from c.1860. The steel and brass hook is a cantilevered hanger which grips a joint of meat, or bird securely, using its own weight. This is a fine example and it dates from c.1780. The brass is marked 'PATENTEE' and it is engraved with strange creatures and anchors. All three parts are in excellent condition and the spit appears to work most of the time. Overall the three pieces are 94cm. long and the bracket stand out from the wall 24.5cm.
Price includes postage within the U.K. Shipping to the U.S.A. add £20. Western Europe add £10.

111 Portobello Road

We started in the antique business in 1983.  At first we were were regulars on the fair circuit  and for over 20 years we have had various outlets on the Portobello Road. We now trade from Atlam at 111 Portobello Road. The shop is open Monday to Friday 10am till 4pm and Saturday 7am till 5pm.

During that 35 years our business has evolved considerably as tastes and styles change. We started out dealing in kitchenalia and early English pottery but now our stock is quite different. Being keen cooks we still love kitchenalia, but much of our stock can still be used.  One of our major lines is Antique copper kitchenware which we re-tin and turn out ready for use. Not all antique copper is good enough to make usable again so we travel thousands of miles to source copper that is both good quality and in good enough condition to re-instate to its’ former glory. Our clientele includes professional chefs, keen amateur cooks, food historians, stately homes and the entertainment industry.

We have always specialised in antique moulds, ceramic, pewter and copper, and love the history of moulded food.

If you are looking for copper purely for decorative purposes we also supply this and you don’t need to pay the premium for the usable pieces.

We have always worked with the customers on our extensive database. If there is something within our field that you are looking for, just email us and we will contact you, and try to work with you as well. An enquiry does not put you under any obligation.

We also carry a range of quality, 19th century, French crystal glass, again more for use than for collectors.

We have a passion for antiques that have lived and can live again.
