Code: FC0057

£395.00

A pretty Victorian cast iron fire insert and pine fire surround made using reclaimed wood. The fire is petite and an ideal size for a bedroom. The fire has a pretty and classic design with a daisy repeating border around the arched fire opening. The fire has the original curved front bars, smoke flap and concrete fire back. The iron has been blacked and polished. The fire has a kite registered design mark on the back. The mark is hard to read but the fire pre-dates 1884,  when the new system replaced the kite mark. The insert is paired with a lovely pine fire surround made using reclaimed wood. The surround has reeded designs on the legs and a carved square in each corner, under the mantel. The pine is stripped and ready for finishing by purchaser with a wax, oil or paint. The surround and insert are antique and have some signs of wear as, expected of antique items. The iron has some scratches and marks. The space for the top plate has some chips to the edge. The concrete fire back has some chips and knocks but is solid. The back has surface rust as expected. The pine surround has some surface cracks, splits and small holes. The insert is a lovely example of Victorian design and the fire has a fantastic look that is ideal for a period property, adding character and charm to a home.
