A very attractive, petite, original Art Nouveau cast iron bedroom combination fire. The fire has a beautiful design, typical of the Art Nouveau era, with a flowing leaf and vine design that runs from the feet up to the crossbar. The crossbar has a large repeated design with fruit or vegetables and leaves. A real feature of the fire is the domed smoke hood with an Art Nouveau flower and scrolling leaves. The fire retains the original front bars and grill. The fire has two fixing lugs, one on either side, under the mantel for fixing the fire to the wall. Please note one lug is a replacement. The iron has been blacked and polished and has a good finish. The fire has an RD number on the back dating it to 1900-1909. The fire is in good antique condition with some slight damage and signs of age, as expected of antique items. The fire has some small knocks, scratches and marks. There are some casting marks visible, along the crossbar and some deep casting marks on the mantel. One fixing lug has been broken off and it has been replaced with a new metal lug. There is some slight damage to the back edge where the lug broke away from the fire. The concrete fire back is secure and stable but some of the adhesive can be seen around the edges. The back has surface rust. Please see pictures for condition details. The fire has a very elegant period appearance, highlighting the best of Art Nouveau design. The fire would be a wonderful addition to a bedroom or smaller reception room and would add charm and character to a home.
