The cast iron has been blacked and polished and has a lovely finish. The fire is in good condition but has some signs of wear and age, as expected of antique items. The fire has some slight tarnish and very light patches of surface rust. There are some small chips, marks and knocks to the tiles and one top green tile is secure but slightly out of alignment.
The tile enamel has some crazing. The top plate has been lost and is replaced with a modern thin metal plate with wooden handle.
The back has surface rust, as expected. The fire is a wonderful example of period design and it would add great character and charm to a home. Please see our other listings for unusual items.
