There is also an accompanying tray pulling handle for use if the tray is hot and this can be inserted on either the right or the left hand side. There is some oxidisation to the metal and it might benefit from a spray over with some heat resistant paint but I think it's rather charming as it is. Proper old school with bags of character. In my opinion, its simply stunning and it would sit straight into an open fireplace and be ready to go. Other than that, not much to tell other than its bloomin' heavy at a shade under 23 kilos approx and probably nearer 26/27k with packaging.
All in all, a lovely old fire basket which would grace any period or themed room. It would also I expect, contrast and compliment a more modern fireplace.
