Fabulous Antique English Brass Coal/Kindling Scuttle (12080)
Wouldn't this look INCREDIBLE beside your fireplace this Winter?!
Genuine Victorian pieces like this are becoming increasingly difficult to find. Made in England, between 1860-1890, this beautiful Scuttle features a very ornate top handle, and frontage with pressed brass detailing.
The exterior is in great condition for its age.
The interior, 'removable' metal insert has some corrosion on the back of its outside, and also inner left edge, but has a second piece inside which has not corroded (see last photo). The corrosion will not affect the integrity of the insert. The Scuttle is heavy (several kilos!) but the removable liner is light.
It measures 300mm wide x 420mm deep x 320mm high - not including handles, and approximately 410mm high including the top handle.
