Attractive Antique Large Cast & Wrought Iron ...

Item Ref

A lovely cast and wrought iron fire basket. We date this set to the mid 19th century.

The basket is fitted with a removable serpentine front frieze and has a large cast iron fire back.

The back depicts a military soldier holding a spear, this is surrounded with an ornate foliate design.

The front legs have an ornate scroll design and are topped with large brass ball finials.

The legs are able to be unscrewed from the base of the basket for transport.

The fire basket and back has a total height of 42" (107cm), an overall front width of 50" (127cm) and an overall depth of 23” (59cm).

The actual fire back has a width of 20” (51cm) and the overall width at the rear of the basket including its legs is 30.5” (78cm).

This lovely fire basket and back remains in a good solid condition, commensurate with age and usage. This includes a little bit of oxidisation to the metalwork and a bit of wear to the brass finials.

This remains a stylish fire set. It will continue to provide good service for many years to come.
