Rare long-armed, century old coal furnace clinker remover, made by the Ideal Coal Burner Co. Detroit, Michigan, circa: late 1800's-early 1900's. Although this is a late 19th-century tool, it is not primitive made, and has a patent pending number.

Clinkers are the incombustible residue, fused into irregular lump(s), that remain after the combustion of coal. This long-handled coal clinker remover was used to safely pull hot clinkers out of a burning coal furnace so as to allow the air source at the bottom to feed the remaining coals. The vast majority of these tools were short-handled (tongs).
