A very large and imposing, cast iron, Arts and Crafts period fire surround. The fire is decorative, with a fleur-de-lys design under the mantel and on the smoke hood.The smoke hood has an attractive domed shape and a decorative and delicate border. The mantel is heavy and solid.
The fire has an RD number on the back and although it is hard to read we believe it is RD594900, dating the fire to 1910. The fire also has an unreadable makers name. The cast iron has been blacked and polished and has a rich finish and colour. The fire is very deep and the opening is quite small, making the item suitable for decorative use. The fire is antique and therefore has some signs of use and wear.Some casting marks and scratches can be seen. The mantel has a crack underneath it but it is stable and sturdy. The back has surface rust as expected.
A lovely period piece that would add great character to a home. If you wish to arrange your own courier for collection, we would bubble wrap the item free of.
