A petite, reclaimed, traditional style cast iron fire basket. The fire basket has a simple design with a thick grill made up of two removable grill plates and has a framework with bars that run around the basket for keeping coals or logs in place. The front has a nice twist detail to one bar. The basket has 4 legs built in to the frame and the front legs have ball finials. The basket could be paired with a cast iron fire back. The iron has been blacked and polished and has a good finish. The basket is in good reclaimed condition with some signs of use and wear, as expected. One of the grills has a crack to two of the thick grill bars but it is sturdy and stable. The outer bars have some slightly uneven edges. The iron has some casting marks and pitting. Please see pictures for condition details. The basket has a simple and stylish design, suited to both modern and period properties and it is of a nice petite size.
PLEASE NOTE: The fire basket could be paired with one of two fire backs we have for sale (extra charge, sold separately). Please see our listing references FB0116 and FB0106 for further details.
