A very pretty reclaimed Art Nouveau cast iron combination fireplace that is the ideal size for a bedroom. The fire has a beautiful canopy smoke hood with a flower in the typical style of the Art Nouveau period. The flowers are repeated along the cross bar and the shaped front bars have delicate detailing. The feet of the fire have a stepped design. The iron has been blacked and polished and has a lovely finish. There is a registered design number on the back of the fire but it is now unreadable. The fire is antique and does have some repaired damage and signs of use. The mantel has been broken and now has a high quality repair. There is a fine crack that can be seen and the fixing plate and screws can be seen at the back. The back of the mantel has a small notch out of it. The concrete fire back has a metal plate holding it in place. There are some light scratches, knocks and casting marks, especially to the mantel. The right hand edge of the mantel has a knock and there is a small amount of surface rust. The back of the fire has surface rust as expected. The fire is a very fine example of Art Nouveau design and is a very pretty item that would be perfect for adding period charm to a bedroom. The fire is a lovely size and is a wonderful decorative piece.
