Roman Cochlearium (prototype pictured above)
Handmade in the USA by Peter Goebel. Historically inspired from many originals from the British Museum.

Jack & Gill Measures (above)

These beautiful cups will last lifetimes.

Pocket Grater (above, two shown)
Handmade in the USA by Peter Goebel and Erv Tschantz. Historic reproduction.
Years ago, a simple wood and brass grater was discovered in a join under the summer beam of a barn built in the 1740s. When the grater was opened, half a nutmeg was found inside.  We like to think that a man sat on the beam to eat his lunch, set his grater on the join, and never remembered to pick it up. Looks like people have always been forgetting lunch things at work.
We've reproduced that little 1740s grater from beautiful cherry wood and brass. It's got a sliding  cover and a small wooden handle to keep your fingers away from the rasp, and the little depression inside is big enough to stow a nutmeg or two.
Measures 4 3/8 by 1 1/2. Cherry wood and brass.
Pocket Grater - $55.00


Chestnut Roaster (above)
Handmade in the USA by Peter Goebel. Historically inspired, late 18th/19th century.
Chestnuts have been a popular food for over 2,000 years. They are a sweet low-gluten nut with few calories, and the only nut with vitamin C. Our roaster is simple, utilitarian, classic, and completely functional. 
Copied from a 19th century original in a private collection, this general style was used in both England and America.
Made from bare copper with a steel handle, it has a domed, hinged, perforated lid, and the walls of the roaster are also perforated. The roaster measures 20" overall, and the body is 6" round and 2" tall. 
Chestnut Roaster - $130.00


Wooden Grater (above)
Handmade in the USA. Historic Reproduction (mid-18th century)
A three-piece cherry grater hand-turned on  original 18th century tools. Come with a coat of foodsafe oil and wax. After a few years, the clear bright wood finish will darken to a medium heddish hue, as shown.
The grater's top knob pulls out to reveal a chamber for spices to be ground; replacing the knob and turning it grinds the spices into a third, removable chamber at the base. Pop that off to have a small wooden cupful of freshly ground spices.
All pieces friction-fit together. Measures 5 1/2" tall and 2" diameter. 
Wooden Grater: $100.00 

This turned out to be a lesson in experiental archaeology. These are listed as spice graters, nutmeg grinders and neither one is right. They are pepper grinders for use at the table, and work just like the modern variety
... only a lot classier. They seem to be quite common in museums, but the labels are wrong.


Small Skimmer "Scummer"
Handmade in the USA by Peter Goebel. Historic Reproduction / Interpretation, ca. 1750, British/Dutch.
An elegant and convenient little tool. When the original was dug, only the little pierced bowl was found - the handle had snapped off. Peter Goebel created an elegant rolled brass handle based on other items from the time. 
Brass. 2 1/4" diameter dished bowl, 10" overall length. 
Small Skimmer / "Scummer": $49.00

Pretzel Tree (above)
Handmade in the USA. Historic reproduction.
A handy, collapsable piece for vending large pretzels, this design was taken from three different artworks showing Dutch bakers in their shops.
