DescriptionThis is one end of a wagon box rod that has been crafted into a poker.
InterpretationBlacksmiths, like many Americans during this time could not afford to throw broken items away. They were looked upon as useful materials that could be repaired or made into something new. It is highly possible that this poker was once a wagon box rod someone had brought in to be replaced.
