The surround has a classic design with carved corbels under the mantel and a decorative piece in the centre of the crossbar. The pine is stripped and ready for finishing by purchaser with a wax, oil or paint. The surround and insert are antique and have some signs of wear as expected of reclaimed items. The iron has some scratches and marks and there are some small chips to the front bars. There is a small chip in the fire arch. The concrete fire back has a crack but it is solid. The top plate is a replacement that has been made for the fire. The back of the fire is slightly loose.
