Pair of large Arts and Crafts Cotswold School wrought iron fire irons, early 20c

Stock Code: 93786-201806271626


Size: Length of log hook 93 cm (36 inches) approx

Age: Early 20th century

Condition: Excellent condition. The upper part is bright iron which has at some point been lacquered/varnished thus retaining its brightness.  The business end has been given a coat of stove black.  There is a very small nick to the edge of the shovel.

Detailed description:

This is a lovely pair of fire irons, a shovel and a log fork/hook (with two straight prongs and one curved one),  which are the most useful tools you would need for tending an open fire in a large inglenook fireplace.

The handles are in the form of shepherd's crooks and decorated in the manner of Bill Thornton and Charlie Downer.  There is a central twisted area of each shaft with an echoing motif.  Exact age not certain - they could be c1910 but we have been told the shape of the shovel suggests a somewhat later date.

Simple and elegant, with a nice weight and balance.
