A pretty, reclaimed, antique cast iron fire surround likely to date to C.1900. The surround has a nice appearance featuring Adam style designs with swags along the crossbar and urns on the top of each leg and pretty detailing running down the legs. The fire opening has an ornate border around it. The surround has been blacked and polished and has a good finish. There is a 2cm (approx) gap between the inner edge of the feet and legs and where the fire would sit against the wall, please see last picture. This gap can be filled with plaster when it is fitted by your builder or slate fire slips could be applied. We can quote for slate slips to be supplied with the surround, please contact us for details. 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 antique condition with some signs of age and some repaired damage. The right hand foot (when looking at the fire) has sustained a break. The foot has been repaired to a high standard but the fixing plates can be seen from the back and the screws can be seen from the front but they have been painted black to be less visible. The crack can be seen. The fixing lug on the right foot has also broken. We have added a metal tab but we can remove it if it is not required. The left hand side of the mantel has a repair, to the back edge. There has been a plate applied underneath and some filler. The repair is not too noticeable. The iron has some small knocks and some casting marks. The large mantel screws are not totally flush with the mantel. The back has surface rust, as expected. Please see pictures for condition details. The fire surround has a very nice design, ideal for a period property and it would add great character to a fireplace.
