A large, reclaimed, original Art Nouveau cast iron fire surround likely to date to C.1900. The surround has a very attractive appearance featuring flowers along the crossbar, in a design typical of the Art Nouveau era. The legs have grooved detailing and small Art Nouveau motifs near the base of the feet. The fire surround has a large and heavy mantel. The surround has been blacked and polished and has a good finish. The surround is ideal for pairing with a fire basket or wood burner and is of a good size for a living or dining room. The fire surround is in good antique condition with some signs of age and some light damage. There are some knocks, chips, pitting and casting marks, especially to the mantel top. There is a raised line along the back edge of the mantel top. There is a small knock to one corner of the mantel. The left hand fixing lug has broken away, leaving some damage and a small metal replacement lug has been added. The back has surface rust, as expected. Please see pictures for condition details. The fire surround has a lovely appearance that would be ideal for a period property and would add great character to a fire place.
