The Howard Roth Collection of Early American Iron


Howard Roth was the consummate collector. With his enthusiasm for the material, perseverance, and competitive spirit, Howard rarely let a great piece of American iron get away. It seemed that no matter how early we would show up for the opening of an antiques show, inevitably there he was in “his place” at the head of the line. The result of such single-mindedness is what you see today—the finest and most comprehensive collection of mostly 18th and early 19th century New England hearth equipment and both iron and signed bronze posnets to ever come on the market. Howard was not only an indomitable hunter-gatherer, but was equally intent on gathering knowledge about how, when, and where his things were made and used. His untimely death cut short not only a life lived with passion, but his life’s work—a book about American iron that he had been researching and writing for the better part of a decade. And while Howard’s failing health finally robbed him of his ability to keep collecting, he continued to work on his book to the very end. To our great misfortune, he was unable to complete what he had devoted so much time and energy to: an exhaustive book on early American hearth equipment—its history and uses. For now, this catalog will have to serve as a humble surrogate for Howard’s “unfinished business.” Our guess is that Howard would have wanted to dedicate that book and now, this catalog, to Judy, his devoted wife and partner, whose constant support he enjoyed throughout their 50 years of marriage and their lifetime of collecting. Without her, he could not have lived the full life he enjoyed…as a loving husband, devoted father, successful lawyer, and passionate collector and scholar. He will be missed.

—Elliott and Grace Snyder

The following unedited statement, titled “ACKNOWLEDGMENT,” was written by Howard Roth, and dated Dec. 31, 2009. It is assumed that it was meant to be included in the comprehensive volume he had planned: “About 40 years ago, I experienced love at first sight. It happened on an evening while accompanying my wife to visit a small antique show held in a country school north of Albany, New York. While my wife carefully picked and inspected, I busied myself by browsing among the genre of antiques and noticed an unfamiliar object that appeared to be an odd shaped long handled ‘iron shovel’ leaning against the far wall of a booth. My eyes were transfixed on this item and I had to take a closer look. Indifference had suddenly been elevated to curiosity and I was drawn to this iron piece. As I got closer, I spotted a similar, but much smaller iron ‘whatever it was.’ By this time, the elderly dealer had noticed my interest, came over and started to explain that these items were iron peels and how they were used. He had my attention and I found myself hanging on every descriptive word. At that point, a lifelong new interest was born. In retrospect, the iron peels were so simple and utilitarian, so pedestrian, but yet so appealing. The uncomplicated lines reflected its utility and artistry and that observation would guide me in collecting hearth equipment over the next forty years. Thank you anonymous country dealer who is probably long gone, but never forgotten. Now, after logging tens of thousands of miles and the family van, purchasing hundreds of pieces of hearth equipment and spending incalculable hours haunting antique shows, flea markets and auctions, it is time to share the knowledge I gained and the pleasure of my collection. I am grateful for all the interesting people I have met in this quest and for the good friends I have made along the way, including my dear friend and mentor, the late Clara Jean Davis and her late husband, Stan, formerly of Hopkinton, New Hampshire to whom I respectfully dedicate this book. In particular, I appreciate the camaraderie, thoughtful and challenging discussions and the selfless sharing of information by many dealers, collectors and artisan friends met through collecting who are most knowledgeable about metal hearth equipment and kitchen accessories. They include Grace and Elliot Snyder, Richard “Smitty” Axtell, Paul DeCoste, Roger Gonzales, Bill Bartley, Steve Kochenburger, Mark Allen, David Good, Marvin Elliott, Hollis Brodrick, John Kovacic and Walter Fleming. I am equally grateful for the numerous other dealers and collectors, too numerous to list, who shared my passion for hearth equipment. You have all enriched my life beyond measure which is the legacy of collection. I extend a special thanks to those individuals at the New York City Historical Society and New York State Library who made available to meet their vast collections of written resource materials and were so helpful to me as I traveled the path of research. I would like to sincerely acknowledge the splendid photographs of the collection of Samantha Allan, the countless hours Shannon Beaulieu and Kimberly A. Baker dedicated to typing this book, the detailed research by Lorraine Jermaine and the proofreading skills of Grace Snyder. Lastly, and most of all, my thanks to my wonderful wife, Judith, who has been constantly at my side for countless shows, auctions and shop visits, and who has displayed an understanding of my passion, limitless patience, and offered the keenest observations, heightening my joy and dampening my disappointments. And to each of you who took the time to read this book I hope you find the reading to be informative and enjoyable and I thank you for your interest.”

Note: In his collection notes Howard Roth writes, “at one time the handle partially separated from the bowl and was repaired.” He also makes note of John Taylor’s advertisement in the Virginia Gazette, June 5, 1793, in which Taylor publicizes his products including, “bell metal skillets, pans and mortars, copper tea-kettles, pans, and coal boxes of all sizes; a great variety of coach mountings, and many fancy patterns, executed with neatness and dispatch, pewter candle molds, dishes, plates, and basins, brass candlesticks...” Mr. Roth points out that “Taylor was one of the few molders of bronze posnets (skillets) that did not work in the large metro areas of Newport, Boston, Philadelphia, New York, [or] Baltimore.” $5,000-7,000

Note: In his collection notes Howard Roth points out that the deep bowl form of this posnet is “reflective of an earlier form than shown by other American posnets.” $8,000-12,000

Note: Regarding the probability of an American attribution, Mr. Roth points out in his notes that the “treatment of the handle is closer in appearance to American forms [than to English forms], and the braces behind the legs have not appeared on English posnets. The name Morrison appears on Philadelphiamade copper as well as a copper tea kettle marked New York owned by the author.

Mr. Pratt was very prominent among the business men of Manfield. He possessed unusual business capacity, owned largely of real estate, and was in his day the most active and industrious man in the town...

Note: In his collection notes Howard Roth writes of the founders, “Robert Gay was a trained brass founder who lived in Boston and became a Tory during the War for Independence. He fled to Nova Scotia in 1776 and moved to England. He changed his attitude after the War’s end and moved back to Boston. Gay formed a partnership with William C. Hunneman, a former apprentice to Paul Revere and set up 19 Union Street in the city of Boston. They worked together until 1799 when they mutually decided to pursue their craft of coppersmithing and brazing separately.” $5,000-7,000

For two similar examples in the Winterthur collection, see Fennimore, Metalwork in Early America, p. 70. Of this and other early Newport posnets in his collection, Mr. Roth writes “Although bronze is described as principally copper and...tin, these examples are...approximately 78% copper with varying percentages of...lead, tin and zinc and very minor amounts of silver and antimony probably incorporated into the casting by being part of the impure copper as found but not completely purged.” $8,000-12,000

If the purchaser breaches any of its obligations under these Conditions of Sale, including its obligation to pay in full the purchase price of all items for which it was the highest successful bidder, Skinner Inc. may exercise all of its rights and remedies under the law including, without limitation, (a) canceling the sale and applying any payments made by the purchaser to the damages caused by the purchaser’s breach, and/or (b) offering at public auction, without reserve, any lot or item for which the purchaser has breached any of its obligations, including its obligation to pay in full the purchase price, holding the purchaser liable for any deficiency plus all costs of sale. 7.

Shipping is the responsibility of the purchaser. Upon request, our staff will provide the list of shippers who deliver to destinations within the United States and overseas. Some property that is sold at auction can be subject to laws governing export from the U.S., such as items that include material from some endangered species. Import restrictions from foreign countries are subject to these same governing laws. Granting of licensing for import or export of goods from local authorities is the sole responsibility of the buyer. Denial or delay of licensing will not constitute cancellation or delay in payment for the total purchase price of these lots. 9. All purchases are subject to the Massachusetts 6.25% sales tax unless the purchaser possesses a Massachusetts sales tax exemption number. Exemption numbers from other states are accepted in Massachusetts if presented with a business card or letterhead.

A premium equal to 23% of the final bid price up to and including $100,000, plus 20% of the final bid price from $100,001 up to and including $1,000,000, plus 12% of the final bid price from $1,000,001 and over will be applied to each lot sold, to be paid by the buyer as part of the purchase price. 11.

The buyer/bidder agrees that any suit for the enforcement of this agreement may be brought, and any action against Skinner in connection with the transactions contemplated by this agreement shall be brought, in the courts of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts or any federal court sitting therein. The bidder/buyer consents to the exclusive jurisdiction of such courts and waives objections that it may now or hereafter have to the venue of any such suit. Revised January 8, 2014
