A very pretty, petite, reclaimed Victorian bedroom combination fire for decorative purposes. The cast iron fire has a lovely design, typical of the era, with an ornate fan style repeating border around the arched fire opening. There is a decorative corbel below the mantel and pretty panels on either side of it, featuring leaves and vines. The fire retains its original curved front bars, fire brick and four fixing lugs. There are two small lugs at the back of the mantel for fitting into the wall. The top plate is a replacement, made from cast iron. The fire is in solid condition with some signs of age and some damage and it is now suited for decorative use only. The left hand side of the fire has sustained some damage and there is a crack that has been repaired with a metal plate and some filler. The mantel screws are new. The bottom front bar has a crack and there is some damage to the bar above it. The top plate is a replacement made from cast iron. The top plate has some casting marks and surface rust. The fire brick has wear and some gaps at the sides. The fire has some pitting and casting marks and there are some knocks to the mantel edge. The back of the fire has surface rust, as expected. Please see pictures for condition details. The fire has a very nice period appearance, with an abundance of character and it will make a lovely decorative item for a bedroom.
