Antique wrought iron salamander

Antique wrought iron salamander Antique wrought iron salamander

Antique wrought iron salamander or hearth cooking tool, unsigned; measures about 22.25" total length; circular surface is about 9.75" X 9-5/8"; stands about 3"h at plate, depending on where you measure as it stands uneven (dollar bill shown in image for size comparison only).  Imperfect, antique, pre-owned, used condition - significant chipping and loss to the edges of the circular surface; we wiped it down with a damp cloth, but it's not super clean or perfect; discolored, brown rust color areas such as near the top of the handle; the center nail which holds the plate onto the handle is very worn away near the top, so the plate is nor adhered firmly to the handle and feet - see last photo; there is some loss to 2 of the feet so it is not super stable and upright (please see photos).
