Description This is a wrought iron and brass poker. The handle of the poker has been split into two parts that twist around each other. The inner "stem" ends in a curling leaf that lies along the handle and the outer "stem" also ends in a leaf that curls around the other. The brass in the poker is a decorative spiral that wraps around and goes down the length of the poker, ending at the bottom hook. The rod also appears to have been painted at one point.
Notes Collected by the Kentucky Arts Commission for a traveling crafts exhibition in 1976.
