A very pretty, petite, original antique cast iron fire trim, suitable for surrounding a small wood burner or fire basket. The cast iron insert has a pretty arch with lovely decorative motif with scrolling leaves and small beads. The legs have very fine detailing. The fire trim has a dating kite mark on the back. The mark is eroded but the fire dates to pre 1884 when a new dating system was introduced and was likely to have been made between 1840 and 1880. The iron has a blacked, burnished finish which has silvery accents on the design. The trim is in good useable condition, however, due to age there are some slight signs of use and wear. The front face has some slight surface rust in places. Light marks and scratches are visible due to age. The back has surface rust as expected. A very pretty iron trim with a fantastic finish that would suit a modern or period property.
