This is a rare Georgian Potato Rake. Potatoes were thrown into the hot ashes of an Inglenook fire. This item was used for turning them over and scooping them out once baked. The spike end could also be used for stabbing them to pick them up. Rare down hearth tool dating from around 1800. One of only three I have ever had in over 40 years!
