The fire has the original front bars and smoke flap but the smoke flap does not stay seated at the back of the fire and will need securing by purchaser. The fire has some slight signs of use and wear, as expected of antique items. The back has surface rust as expected. The front face has some small scratches, scuffs and marks and some very small patches of surface rust.
There is some slight damage to the concrete back and is loose. The smoke flap has surface rust and is quite weak and showing signs of age.
The fire is suitable for decorative purposes only. The fire insert is ideal for adding character and style to a hearth and is a lovely example of Victorian design.
If you wish to arrange your own courier for collection, we would bubble wrap the item free of charge. There are a few points we would like to make you aware of in terms of risk. There is a small amount of risk with transporting any item.
This risk can be minimised by either collecting in person or using a trusted person or company to move the item for you. 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.
