A reclaimed, antique, Edwardian cast iron fire surround that is of an ideal size for a living or dining room. The fire has a simple and elegant design with a raised border around the fire opening and a decorative border on the crossbar. The fire is ideal for surrounding a wood burner or for use with a fire basket. The iron has been blacked and polished and the fire has a fine finish. There are two lugs under the mantel for fixing screws and two lugs on the back edge of the mantel. The back of the fire has a registered design number, RD531746, dating the fire to 1900-1909. The fire is in good antique condition with some signs of age and slight damage, as expected of reclaimed items. The left hand foot has a crack that has been filled. The foot is stable and the crack is not particularly noticeable. There are some small scratches, knocks and casting marks to the iron. There are some knocks to the front of the mantel and one mantel screw is slightly sunken. The back of the fire has surface rust as expected. Please see pictures for condition details. The fire has an elegant and classic look that would suit both period and modern properties and is a lovely example of Edwardian design.
