The iron has been blacked and polished and has a lovely finish. The fire has retained its original fixing lugs, front bars and grill. The fixing lugs are quite unusual and are designed to be chased in to the wall and plastered over. There is a registered design number on the back of the fire and although the last number is faint we believe it to be RD109324, dating the fire to 1888.The fire has had a large break to the mantel, however it has been repaired to a very high standard and is not particularly noticeable. The fire will need to be handled with care when carrying and fitting. The fire brick has a small chip at the top and therefore does not fit flush with the smoke flap in one corner. The back has surface rust as expected.
Ideal for a period property. Very pretty and desirable item and a very fine example of Victorian design.

We have been using the same trusted family firm of couriers for many years now and are happy with their services, additionally you are covered for loss or damage. We would not be liable for loss or damage in transit. For cast iron items, no amount of bubble wrap will protect them from smashing if they were allowed to fall over. I would urge you not to book a parcel carrier, although cheaper. I would choose a door to door courier who does not use depots to transfer items.
