A rare early 19th century wrought iron 'harnen stand'. 

These primitive, highly decorative and skilfully constructed objects would have once stood next to an open fire in a rural dwelling, whose function was for slowly drying oatcakes.

This remarkable example comprises a mixture of different county styles: Armagh, Monaghan & Cavan. It has acquired an excellent surface colour and also boasts a finely wrought stand.

This harnen comes from the 'Annie Marchant Collection of Kitchenalia'. 

There are losses to the thistle ironwork but all commensurate with age.

A wonderful piece of scarce, sculptural folk-art from Ulster.

Origin: Early 19th Century - Northern Ireland & Border Counties.

Provenance: Annie Marchant Collection Of Kitchenalia.

SOLD.
