Antique French 'Couronne d'office' or Hanging Hooks

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

This thing looks rather like a Medieval torture device,
but really it has the innocent use of being hooks for drying sausages in long-ago France.

It would have hung from its great iron ring near or even inside a large old chimney where the smoke would have cured the homemade pork sausages that were a mainstay of French peasants winter food.

Now it would be a fabulous pot rack in an authentic French-style kitchen.

I have 'a thing' for old forged iron and I just think this object is so very handsome.

One can easily see how these old hooks became know as 'crowns' or in French 'couronne'. And 'office' is an old French term for 'pantry.'

I show in the last photo a similar 'couronne I found in a lovely book I was given by a friend which is entitled The Epicure Collector by Patrick Dunne. Naturally that one is different in detail as these old objects were individually handmade by the local blacksmith to order.

This old hanging hook would date to the 1700s-early 1800s.

It is in superb antique condition, with only one of the small spikes at the bottom missing. Otherwise it is completely intact and strong...ready for use or simply for display.
