Antique Cast Iron Fireplace & Fender @ £68.00
Here is an antique cast iron fireplace complete with matching fender from an old dolls house, they are rather heavy pieces. The fireplace and fender are very much in the Victorian style and quite decorative, and although exact date is unknown, this clearly is very old. I have scoured every inch of these two pieces but cannot find a makers mark – so as there is no definitive provenance either, I can only describe as I find. It could even have been a salesman’s sample, but we may never know. The moulded detail is lovely and very realistic. There is some aging and a teeny bit of rust (more so on the back), but this simply adds to the charm and realism. If you have an antique dolls house needing an old fireplace, then this is an amazing opportunity to purchase one. These do not come along in such good condition very often these days. The fireplace itself measures 5 1/8” at widest point (mantel) x 7/8” at deepest point (base) x 4 ¼” high. Fender measures 4 ¾” wide x 1 7/8” deep. A truly gorgeous set!
