|Title:||Stoneware Crock; Pine Knob Iron Works, Bonneauville, PA.|
This cobalt decorated crock nicely depicts the Pine Knob Iron Works blacksmith shop at 4A Locust St in Bonneauville,
All manner of traditional and contemporary wrought iron pieces have been produced there since 1980. Both functional and artistic pieces have been fabricated. Of note is that the brick forge at Pine Knob was reassembled from an early fallen-down Low Dutch blacksmith shop located about five miles north of Bonneauville. It was rebuilt at 4A Locust St. in Bonneauville during the 1980's. Since then, the forge has been measured, photographed and reproduced by a New Jersey museum, the Army War College in Carlisle, and several private owners. The forge incorporates a unique draft chamber that has proven more effective than most other period brick forges.
