A reclaimed cast iron swans nest fire basket and cast iron fire dogs. The petite basket has a traditional swans nest shape with spiked finials at the front and two sides. The basket rests on period style fire dogs with large finials and decorative feet. The fire basket and dogs could be paired with a cast iron fire back. The basket has been blacked and polished and the fire dogs have a black paint finish. The basket and fire dogs are reclaimed and therefore have some slight signs of use and wear. There are some small areas of tarnish to the grill and some small patches of surface rust to the underside of the basket. There are some scratches and marks to the basket and fire dogs. The fire dogs have some knocks, scratches and some losses to the paint finish. Please see pictures for condition details. The fire basket and fire dogs have a lovely traditional appearance and would make a nice feature within a fire place.
