A reclaimed cast iron swans nest fire basket with fire dogs and integral frame. The basket is of a classic design and the fire dogs are heavy and solid with a gothic look. The fire dogs have a rams head pattern and gothic style feet. The fire dogs have an integral frame to hold the fire basket in place. The fire basket and dogs have some surface rust, areas of wear and fire tarnishing. There is rust on the back of the fire dog frame. The dogs have been blacked and polished, giving a rich colour and finish. There is a small knock to one foot. The basket has some damage as two spiked finials have breaks. The swans nest basket is of a nice size, with plenty of burning space. Unusual and interesting fire accessories that would add character and style to a fireplace.
Basket 58.5cm x 32.6cm
Width from left of left dog to right of right dog 71cm (approx)
