18th Century Chimney Crane

WALPOLES
The chimney crane was an 18th-century addition to the open kitchen fireplace, a refinement of the simple 'ratchetted' pot-hook. Hung against the back wall of the hearth, it consisted of a swinging bracket with an adjustable sliding arm. This enabled a suspended cooking vessel to be easily moved over any part of the open fire and at various heights. By such means a cook avoided having to touch very hot and sooty pot handles and could control the cooking temperature more easily. With the development of the closed range such objects became obsolete.
English circa 1760.

Walpoles is an antiques business that has been established for more than 35 years with an extensive stock which can be divided into three broad themes: "The Army" encompassing colonial furniture and works of art, folk art of the British soldier as well as campaign furniture, pictures and objects of a military theme; "The Navy" covering fine and folk art associated with the British Royal and Merchant Navy fleets as well as fine art and objects that fall under a title of "The China Trade"; and finally there is an established core of furniture, pictures and works of art typical of "The English Country House".

Founded by Graham Walpole, the business first set up in Church Street, in London’s Marylebone, and by the end of the 1980s had moved to Westbourne Grove, from where they dealt until the turn of the last century. In 2004 Walpoles relocated to their home town of Greenwich and joined the British Antiques Dealers Association but now work from 111 Portobello Road. Please be aware that this shop is too small to show all of the stock on the website and that you should make an enquiry before your journey to ensure that the item in question is there for you to see. We are open every day, with the exception of Sundays, between the hours of 10 a.m. & 4 p.m., (Saturday 7.00 a.m. - 5 p.m.)
