Please help me identify anitique?
I found this buried in my woodshed floor, house dates from 1837.Small village near Peterborough Ontario.
Have been told by locals that it may be something that hung on the side of a wood stove to keep tea kettle warm? Or a step to a horse carriage?
It is 3" x 2 1/2 " across the face, which bears a "Stag" (Deer) has a 3" arm, with a 3/4 " hook. It has a "T" in the metal on the bottom, appears to be made of cast iron.
Any suggestions would be much appreciated. Makes a great conversation paperweight on my office desk. ( I have further photos that can be emailed)
