TRUE ANTIQUE 1800 ENGLAND

 THIS IS A PRE-VICTORIAN, ENGLISH, BRASS SHEETING OVER WOOD, FIRE PLACE GUARD/FENDER. THEY DO NOT MAKE EM LIKE THIS ANY MORE! THIS COULD HAVE BEEN MADE WHEN CHARLES DICKENS WAS ROAMING ENGLAND!

I BOUGHT THIS IN ENGLAND IN 1960.  I WAS TOLD IT WAS A PRE- VICTORIAN PIECE, EARLY 1800'S.  I HAVE TAKEN GOOD CARE OF IT AND IT IS IN THE SAME CONDITION AS WHEN I BOUGHT IT.
HOWEVER, THERE ARE SOME MUCH EARLIER CONDITION ISSUES.  THERE ARE 72 BRASS HALF ORB DECORATIONS, SOME ARE DENTED BUT NOT TOO BAD,  16 OF THE ORBS ARE MORE SEVERELY DENTED SEE PHOTOS # 4-6  IF IT WAS IMPORTANT TO THE BUYER, I AM SURE A GOOD RESTORER COULD REPAIR THE ORBS. IT DID NOT BOTHER ME.  ON THE BACK SIDE THERE IS A SMALL SPOT OF WOOD SHOWING THROUGH THE METAL,  SEE PHOTOS # 7-9.

THIS IS A BIG FIREPLACE FENDER, MAYBE FOR A CASTLE HEARTH!
 MEASURES 56" FROM FRONT CORNER ACROSS TO OTHER FRONT CORNER.  IT IS 2" HIGH AT THE BACK AND IT SLANTS A BIT TO THE FRONT.  BASE IS 4" WIDE AS IT RESTS ON THE HEARTH. THE SIDE ARMS ARE 16 " LONG EACH.  WEIGHS 10 LB 2 OZ.
THIS IS A ONE OF A KIND FIREPLACE FENDER, IF YOU ARE IN NEED OF A LARGE ONE, SAY FOR A BIG CABIN FIRE PLACE, OR YOUR CASTLE, THEN LOOK NO FURTHER.  NEEDLESS TO SAY THEY DO NOT MAKE THEM LIKE THIS ANY MORE.

ITEM # 2 IS A VINTAGE 1960S FIREPLACE, DECORATIVE BROOM. IT LOOKS TO BE ALL HAND ASSEMBLED.

THE BROOM PART  ITSELF IS ABOUT 1/3 COVERED IN PINE CONES, NUTS, LEAVES AND SOME RED "BERRIES".  IT IS A PRETTY, HOME SPUN MIX OF AMERICANA.

THE HANDLE IS BAMBOO AND IT IS LONG AT 36".  THE TOTAL LENGTH OF THIS BROOM IS APPROX 52 INCHES.
I BOUGHT THIS AT A HOLIDAY BAZAAR IN 1960S.  I HAVE USED IT FOR DISPLAY ONLY.  IT GOES VERY WELL WITH THE BRASS FENDER.

THE BROOM  HAS TO BE BALANCED/ PROPPED AGAINST THE FIREPLACE, AS IT IS A BIT FRONT HEAVY.  IT IS NOT A PROBLEM, JUST SOMETHING TO KNOW.   WEIGHS 2.2 LBS.  ITS ALWAYS NICE TO HAVE A INTERESTING LOOKING BROOM BY THE FIREPLACE.
AS FOR MY SELF, I ALWAYS FIGURED IF I DID NOT DISPLAY IT,  I COULD RIDE IT!

I AM NOT A DEALER, JUST AN OLD LADY WHO IS  SELLING HER OWN THINGS.  I DESCRIBE THE BEST I CAN, WARTS AND ALL.  YOUR SATISFACTION IS IMPORTANT TO ME.
PLEASE LOOK AT THE PHOTOS AND ASK QUESTIONS.  NO RETURN OR REFUND.
I SHIP IN 2-4 DAYS TIME.   THE 2 ITEMS WILL SHIP TOGETHER AND GO GROUND SERVICE. IT IS A BIG PACKAGE!  IF IT SHOULD SHIP CHEAPER I WILL REIMBURSE ANY EXCESS PAID.
PAY PAL IS BEST FOR ME, AND PROMPT PAYMENT IS ALWAYS APPRECIATED.
THANKS.
