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.

Size: Height 95.5cm x Max Width 41.25cm (37 1/2" x 16")
