An attractive reclaimed cast iron fire basket and fire dogs. The fire basket has a traditional 'swans nest' design with spiked finials around all sides. The fire basket has been paired with ornate fire dogs with a very nice design. The fire dogs have fleur-de-lys style finials and open twist iron legs. The front feet of the fire dogs are arched. The basket rests on top of the fire dogs and the basket and fire dogs compliment each other well. The cast iron has been blacked and polished and it has a good finish. The fire basket is reclaimed and therefore has some small signs of age and use. The fire basket has some notches and knocks from use and some casting marks. There are some small scratches and marks to the basket and fire dogs. Please see pictures for condition details. The fire basket has a very nice appearance, ideal for both period and modern properties and it would make a fantastic feature within a fireplace.
