An antique Georgian hobgrate cast iron fire insert and pine fire surround, ideal for a bedroom or reception room. The hobgrate has a pretty design with repeating pattern border around the arched fire opening and shaped front bars that have a pretty motif below. The sides of the fire opening have small warming plates, traditional for the period, that were used for cups and glasses. The iron has been blacked and polished and the border has an attractive burnished finish. The insert is paired with a fire surround made of old reclaimed pine. The surround has a classic design with thin moulded details at the top of the legs. The pine is stripped and ready for finishing by purchaser with a wax, oil or paint. The surround and hobgrate are antique and have some signs of wear as expected of reclaimed items. The concrete fire back has a large crack but there is a strap attached to the back to secure it. The fire has no top plate but we can quote to make a replacement metal opening and closing plate, please contact us for details. If the fire is to be used for decorative purposes only we can make a ply wood plate that will be sprayed black, for no extra charge. Please contact us at time of purchase if you would like a ply plate. There are some light scratches and marks to the iron and the back has surface rust as expected. The pine surround has some small holes and some surface cracks. The hobgrate is a lovely example of Georgian design and the insert and surround have a classic look that is ideal for a period property, adding character and charm to a home.
