A very large and interesting reclaimed iron fire basket and ornate reclaimed fire dogs. The fantastic fire basket has a hand woven design that forms the main basket, with decorative finials surrounding the top of the basket. The fire basket has four large scrolls, one in each corner, that rest on the large fire dogs the basket is paired with. The iron fire dogs have a very ornate appearance and are of a beautiful and unusual design. The fire dogs have large feet with scrolling detail, a decorative patterns and beautiful circular finials with bronze detailing. The fire basket and fire dogs are big and would be ideal for a large hearth.
The fire basket and fire dogs are in good solid condition with some signs of use, as expected. The basket has some tarnish and some areas of surface rust. There are some marks and scratches to the paint finish. The fire dogs have some scratches and knocks to the black paint finish, especially to the front of the feet and the bar where the basket rests. Please see pictures for condition details.
The basket and fire dogs would suit modern and period properties and have a very interesting design, making them an ideal show piece for a home.
