A very beautiful and highly decorative, reclaimed, Art Nouveau tiled cast iron combination fire, C1900. The fire is heavy and solid and of a good size for a living or dining room. The fire has a stunning design, typical of the era, with large flowers and flowing leaves on each side of the cross bar. The fire has a feature smoke hood with decorative leaves. On each side of the fire opening are fantastic Art Nouveau tiles, each with a yellow and blue flower and green leaves that compliment the fires design. The fire retains the original front bars and grill and there is a fixing lug on each side, under the mantel. The cast iron has been blacked and polished and has a lovely finish. The combination fire is in very good condition with some slight signs of age and some damage to the tiles, as expected of reclaimed antiques. The iron has some small marks, knocks and casting marks. The back of the fire has surface rust and some visible tile adhesive. The tiles do have some crazing and cracking and there are some tiles with large cracks and some chips but they are stable within the fire. There are some small knocks to the edges of the concrete fire back. Please see pictures for details. The fire is a fine example of Art Nouveau design, perfect for a period home, and it would make a fantastic show piece within the home.
