Today I thought I would share with you a few of the metal objects that were found around our property.
1. No Clue – but I think it may go with object 5.
2. An old iron. Aren’t you glad you don’t have to iron your clothes like that any more. It cleaned up pretty nicely. I display it on top of my antique ice box.
3. No clue
4. It’s a simple latch like you would find on a horse’s lead rope. (nothing to impressive, just was in the finds)
5. McCormick plate. At first I thought this was off of an old tractor. However, my nephew said he remembers his grandmother having an old stove with a plate like this. So I’m guessing it’s an old stove part and I think object 1 may be off the same thing (maybe).
6. Part of a tractor “wheel” (think tank track).
7. Old door knob. I wish you could see the intricate detailing on the know itself. It is really beautiful. I can’t seem to get it cleaned up very well but I would love to actually put it to use.
8. Sledge hammer
9. Hammer head with part of the handle still attached.
Here is a closer picture of the McCormick plate.
If you have any ideas on some of the objects leave a comment and let me know.
