A very pretty late Victorian cast iron bedroom fire front with an attractive oak mantel. The fire has a very ornate design with scrolling details, fruit, leaves and a central star on the crossbar. The legs have a column detail and there is a flower border around the opening. The iron has been blacked and polished and there are 2 fixing lugs for attaching the fire to the wall. The original damaged mantel has been replaced with a beautiful waxed rustic oak mantel. The fire front is designed to be paired with a fire basket and sits around the fire opening or can be used for decorative purposes in a bedroom. The oak mantel has an attractive grain and is a solid and quality piece of timber. The pairing of cast iron with oak gives the fire a unique and interesting look that would fit with period, country or rustic properties. The fire is in very good condition but has some signs of use, as expected of reclaimed antiques. There are some slight scratches and small casting marks. The oak mantel has some surface cracks, uneven edges, wood knot splits and there is a knock to the front edge. There are some treated woodworm holes. The back has surface rust as expected. The fire front is an interesting and beautiful item that would add great character to a home and paired with a fire basket would complete a hearth.
