This is an original 18th Century Pie Crimper. Very neat and most likely early 18th Century. The handle is forged from wrought iron and split and separated to house the brass crimper wheel. The handle has a slight flair to the back end, and is then forged into a nicely formed hook with a scrolled tip. The brass crimper wheel, which is all hand filed, shows nice form and typical wear of a piece this old. Overall condition is very nice on this piece and has an overall length of 6 1/2″.
