A clock work wind up "spit jack" rotisserie was also called a turnspit or fireplace jack. This brass rotisserie device from the mid 1800's was used to keep a roast or birds turning in a fireplace to cook evenly.
Signed "Salter" as shown, this antique from England dates from the mid 1800's. A key winds up the spring mechanism, which has been professionally cleaned and oiled and works well.
Turning a few revolutions in one direction, it then reverses for even cooking. The 6" diameter iron wheel has adjustable rings to attach several items to roast.
The brass "bottle" shaped motor measures 4" across, overall height is 16."
