This was the first thing I made in the first formal blacksmithing class I took at the Farmers Museum in Cooperstown, NY. To me this is still the epitome of Colonial smithing. Every house had a cooking fire and meals were important, because you couldn't just callout to pizza if you burned dinner. They might have used different length s-hooks to hang the pot over the fire from the fireplace crane, or they might have had one of these devices. It's the equivalent of the knob on the stove today, but instead of adjusting the fire, they adjusted the pot height. Today they are very popular with Dutch Oven cooks and other cooking over a campfire using a tripod or chuckwagon cooker
