A heavy, reclaimed, cast iron Empire style fire basket with fire dogs. The basket is of a good size and has attractive scrolled finials around the basket and two larger scrolls at the corners of the front face. The fire has a deep fire brick at the back that has been sprayed black. The basket is paired with fantastic Empire style fire dogs with a column design and scrolled feet. The iron has been blacked and polished and has a rich colour. The basket is reclaimed and therefore has some signs of use and wear. The fire back does have some cracks although it is sturdy. There is some tarnish and slight surface rust, mainly to the grill and back. There are some breaks to the grill. There are some small scratches, marks and knocks to the iron. The basket has a fantastic decorative look that would suit a cottage, period or modern property.
