An 18thC English antique steel lark spit having six pairs of prongs to impale birds or other meats. These devices were placed in front of the fire grate / hearth where the meat would gradually cook.
This stand has the addition of a steel hoop too which was presumably used for holding a cooking pot or drip pan to collect the meat juices.
The spit and hoop can be moved up and down the steel shaft/stem (the shaft is decorated with a knop at the top). Supported overall on a tripod base.
Condition – good as per the images.
