A very attractive and unusually designed, Art Nouveau, combination fire. The fire is very tall and has an interesting look, with a large mantel and curved section below it. The fire has an attached top piece that is seen above the mantel and has a stylised butterfly and flowers. There are flowers and scrolling leaves under the mantel, flowers on the legs and a decorative border around the fire opening. The fire retains the original curved front bars. The back of the fire has an unusual design in which a concrete fire back is placed within a metal framework and a strap holds the back in place. The fire has been given a new concrete fire back that sits nicely within the frame. The fire has been blacked and polished and has a fantastic finish. The back of the fire has a registered design number, RD564262, dating it to between 1910 and 1919. The fire also has the number 1848, perhaps referring to its model number. The fire is in good condition but does have some wear from use. The back has surface rust. The metal strap for securing the fire back has wear and is thin and fragile. The front of the fire has some light scratches, knocks and casting marks. Slight tarnish and surface rust to the grill.  The fire has a very pretty appearance that would be ideal for a period home and has a very unusual and stylish look.
