The piece is all hand made. I am not sure of the original use, but it looks like it could have been used in a very early kitchen or forge.
At one time in our history, items similar to this were used to melt down lead items for musket ammunition.
There is a hanging hole in the handle.
SIZE: This antique strainer ladle measures 13 1/2" long. The head is 5" by 3 1/4". It is 2 pieces soldered together. This is a very large and heavy item.
