Vintage c1970s Metal Fireplace (B) @ £28.00 each BOTH RESERVED
Here are two black painted metal fireplaces made in the 1970s by maker unknown, both identical and being sold separately. They are lovely and have been very solidly made by a craftsman. There is some attractive decorative embellishment along the top and down the sides. The fire fret is separate and stands beautifully in front of the fixed unpainted metal grate. Each fireplace measures 3 ¼” wide x 3 ¾” high x just over 1” deep. They are both in good used condition, a little wear. These are of course meant to sit inside a fire surround, and if you cannot fine a commercially made one to fit, then one could easily be made from simple batons of wood. SPECIAL NOTE: These were originally made in the 1970s as replacements for a late Victorian dolls house called Tregony House that came to owner Peggy Allen broken up because it was too large to store as a whole (can you believe it)! It appeared in Volume 2 No.9 Winter 1973/74 issue of the International Dolls House News magazine for an article written by Peggy Allen. Quote: “The fireplaces were repaired and measured for grates: these were individually and most beautifully made to fit each fireplace by a craftsman”. Over the years Tregony dolls house had several subsequent owners and at some point, these were removed from that house to be used elsewhere.
