The Kitchen Broom

click for an even bigger image Slightly lighter in weight than the Villager, this broom hangs at the fireplace. In bygone times it was used to sweep up the ashes, wood chips and splinters generated by the fireplace as the early American cook prepared meals for the family. It is timeless in its usefulness at the fireplace and unsurpassed for its attractiveness. For the modern family, the favored room is the kitchen where it hangs handily to sweep up cookie crumbs and tracked in mud or dirt. The soft flexibility of the uncut broomcorn makes it particularly effective in sweeping a smooth surface, such as vinyl or hardwood floors. It measures 40-48 inches.
