I love this wee fireplace - it is certainly a strange item.

I have two matching ones available for sale (ONE SOLD JANUARY 2022) - probably an item for the more specialist collector of architectural oddities - or perhaps for display in a fireplace showroom. They can also be used as doorstops.

This is a genuine Scottish antique item - dating to the late 19th century.

This is a miniature cast iron fireplace - which would have been made for a travelling salesman to take around newly built Victorian houses and premises to show clients what models of cast iron fireplaces he had on offer to install in the buildings - so here we have a quirky salesman's sample.

As you can see from my photographs, this is made with all the attention to detail that you might find in a large, full-size one.

Here we have a central grate where you would place logs or coals - there is a cast-iron backboard above and behind - around is a decorative garland scroll - which has been painted in a matt gold tone. To each side are ivy leaves with piecework details - on the mantlepiece above is a Royal Crest - with a unicorn to one side and a lion to the other - all is surmounted by a crown.

Dimensions: Overall height is 10 1/4 inches. The width is 11 inches. The depth is 1 1/2 inches.

As you can see it has its natural antique red cast iron patina on the reverse - with the words: GREENLEES / GLASGOW and the Registration number: RN309874.

These miniature samples are now quite rare - and especially in such a lovely condition

It is 1.8 kg in weight - so sadly I will not be able to post this cheaply outside of the UK.

It will cost £10 to post to UK addresses with Parcelforce48. This will be applied to your order at the checkout stage.
