Shovel was painted red, which was not evident in the photo, and which would not have been the original, antique finish. Also, he overcharged me (by almost double) for shipping costs. When I tried to resolve both disputes with him, he was rude and refused to come to a reasonable solution with me. This experience made me very unlikely I will ever shop with Etsy again.

You Did Not Look at Photos & Fully Read the Listing because Clearly is a RED Handle & states the shipping. It was Red when found in the barn. We do Not paint as you Accused Us "painted shiny, metallic paint on blade" Your Words. What more lies can you come up with? We Only Used Linseed Oil. You convo us asking about the length/ shovel before, Nothing about the shipping or color. Your Opinion "would not have been the original antique finish" Is Just YOUR Opinion, One that carries No Weight in the Antique World. We Do Not sell Antiques based on opinions Only Facts. Your 1st purchase on Etsy maybe the last because you did not see RED? READ Shop Listing & Shop Policies. You do Not write Our Rules. You opened a case It was CLOSED By Etsy in Our Shops Favor. Buyer has to do their Homework Before & Not Lie.

About

SeaGlassPrimitives, Like a fox on the Hunt for the finest American Antique and Vintage Cast Iron Cookware.

Part of who we are, and why we do it our way.
We live in Northern Vermont and our farm is Vermont Certified Organic. We are members of the Northeast Organic Farming Association of Vermont. We believe you are what you eat. So our aim is to do everything we can to promote good heathy living, whether for ourselves or for our customers.

This is our way of life.

We make our pure Vermont Maple Syrup here on our farm. We believe most pure Vermont Maple syrup is basically Organic. We have chosen not to have our Sugar Bush certified organic, but we use all organic practices. Very costly for the small amount that we make to get certified.
We never use any chemical, pesticide, or herbicide products on our trees or during the syrup boiling process at any time in our sugarhouse ever.

This takes you to our cast iron cookware explanation of: "Professionally Cleaned and Organically Seasoned". There are a lot of ways to clean and season cast iron. We have chosen to only use Organic and Food Grade cleaning and seasoning products. As stated above, you are what you eat. We also collect and use cast iron cook ware, it is cleaned and seasoned the same way that we offer it to you are customer. There is a very time consuming process to cleaning and seasoning cast iron. There is also the science and the chemistry behind the process and the products that one uses. You never just throw cast iron into a hot fire, good way to warp or crack it. There is chemistry at work in the products that one uses in cleaning and seasoning. You have cleaners that have high metals in them and are carcinogenic inside your body. You also have hard and soft oils, you need to know what polymerization is and so you need to start with the right cleaning products and finish with the right oil. We use an Organic Oil that is an Omega-3 Supplement. We do not purchase Crisco for our cooking for health reasons, so it has no place with our cast iron cookware.

Please do not believe that an initial seasoning will result in a non-stick surface like teflon, That’s not how cast iron works. We do the Initial Seasoning; it improves over time. That’s the nature of cast iron seasoning. You still need grease / oil when cooking.
There is No such thing as bullet proof seasoning.

All our cast iron photos are taken outside on a white back round, so we have no shadows or other colors interfering with the object in the photo. Being a Wildlife Photographer even outside with the snow.

A word about Cast Iron Seasoning; If you are purchasing cast iron which you have read elsewhere that has been all seasoned, that seasoning should not be sticky or tacky at all. That is Not seasoning.

A word about Color; The color after just 2 seasoning coats makes the cast iron cookware piece Black looking, Not Gray. That is a sign that the piece has not been seasoned properly. Before you season a piece of bare to the metal cast iron it is grayish in color from the cleaning. That is the color of clean cast iron grayish looking, lighter to darker bare metal, also some pieces have the polished / milled cooking surface which can be shiner grayish metal before seasoning. The older the piece the darker it can be, no two pieces of cast iron are exactly the same color.
What did your Grandmothers cast iron look like? Black A good seasoning should have no runs, not be blotchy in appearance and have the same overall color.

A word about Rust Pitting; Something to think of when you are purchasing cast iron. Rust pitting is where the rust ate at the metal. Rust pitting is round dimples in the iron most of the time. Question is how much metal did the rust eat? You should always check very well for any rust pitting on cast iron pans and always ask the seller?

A word about Reproduction and Counterfeit; There are sellers on Etsy and eBay that sell reproduction and counterfeit cast iron pieces, for one of two reasons. They just do not care, or do not know. We do care and we do know a fake when we see one. We have been dealing with this for over 30+ years in the antiques business. You will never find a reproduction or counterfeit anything in our shop. What you will find in our shop are some of the finest and very rare American made pieces of cast iron. Some being museum quality

Please Note; It has come to our attention that some cast iron sellers are using Muriatic Acid to remove rust from their cast iron, Beware!

Something to think about. A good many hunters and fisherman melted lead in cast iron skillets and pots. Those pieces are now entering the market as re-seasoned pieces with no mention of its lead history. We want you to know that all our cast iron has never been used for lead melting. We inspect every piece of cast iron before we purchase.

Our care instructions will be included, how to use and care for your cast iron for years to come.

All our cast iron ships with Insurance. You will get a tracking # when it ships.
We ship with the USPS, only.
