A reclaimed, swans nest style, cast iron fire basket and fire dogs. The fire basket is solid and well made with a swans nest shape and decorative studs. The fire basket has a removable grill which is ideal for cleaning purposes. The basket sits upon two pretty cast iron fire dogs with decorative barley twist detailing and arch shaped feet. The basket is perfect for a hearth or for decorative use in a bedroom and could be paired with a cast iron fire back. The iron has been blacked and polished and has a nice finish. The basket and fire dogs are in very good usable condition but have some small signs of use, as expected of reclaimed items. There are some small knocks, scratches and casting marks and some slight tarnish and signs of use. Please see pictures for condition details. The basket's elegant design is ideal for both period and modern properties and is perfect for finishing a fireplace.
