A pretty Victorian cast iron tiled fire insert. The fire insert has an attractive design, typical of the period, with flowers and leaves decorating the smoke hood. The fire has a repeating border around the opening. The fire has pretty flower design transfer tiles in brown, green and cream, framed by slim textured border tiles. The cast iron has been blacked and polished and has a lovely finish. The back of the fire has a registered design mark, RD249875, dating the fire to 1895. The fire has been photographed with a concrete fire brick and fire stool. These are available seperately for an extra charge (prices listed below), please contact us if you wish to purchase the stool and fire brick too. The fire is in very good antique condition but there are some signs of wear and age, as expected. The back has surface rust as expected. There is a crack in the front bars but they are solid and stable. The tiles have some crazing and very small knocks. The decorative strip under the smoke hood has some chips to the edge. Some very small marks and scratches can be seen. The fire is of an ideal size for a living or dining room and has a pretty design, complimented by the antique fire tiles. A usable and desirable item.
