SHIPPING DELAY. We are away on a buying trip; shipping will resume on October 28, 2019. Vintage ca. 1970 set of Mr. Cheftender "Ranger" barbecue tools consisting of a spatula and meat fork with western flair. The set is made of stainless steel with hardwood handles and one-piece copper bolsters with guards made in the shape of a sheriff's five-point star badge stamped "Ranger" and embellished with a rope detail. The metal portion of the handles are stamped "Mr Cheftender, Stainless, USA." The pommels appear to be aluminum. These originally had leather tongs for hanging, but they have been replaced with a length of waxed cord. Interestingly, the Smithsonian's National Museum of American History has an item describing these tools at https://americanhistory.si.edu/collections/search/object/nmah_1424251 (see last two images). Measurements and condition description below.

MEASUREMENTS: 18 1/4 in. long

CONDITION: Very good vintage with wear consistent with age, such as scuffs and scratches on the metal. The wooden handles are intact; there's a slight color variation between the two. Hanging cords are replacements.

A NOTE ABOUT VINTAGE: Everything we sell at AlegriaCollection is vintage, meaning that it's at least 20 years old, often much older. Consequently, most of our items show evidence of previous use and, in general, this is viewed as adding to the aged character of a piece. We make every effort to accurately describe any flaws and encourage you to carefully read the description, particularly when purchasing vintage as a gift.
