Antique c. 1880 French Gothic Ornate CAST IRON COAL HOD Scuttle for Hearth
This is an incredible antique Victorian-era COAL HOD or SCUTTLE made to sit on the Hearth or next to your Coal Stove. I've also seen these referred to as "Turtles". This one dates to the 1880's and is from France and is in the classic French Gothic style.

I see no maker marking on it. The cast iron has intricate motifs with very fine casting quality. It stands about 12 and sits on 3 feet. It weighs 24 pounds with the shovel.

The Top is hinged in the middle and opens to hold Coal or most anything else you choose to store there. It doesn't appear to me that it's ever been re-painted, or at least not in a very long time. Inside has some surface rust that will easy clean off if you prefer.

It comes with what may be the original heavy cast and turned Brass Shovel. It fits through a recess in the top. Great visual appeal in a utilitarian object. This item is in the category "Antiques\Architectural & Garden\Fireplaces, Mantels & Fireplace Accessories". The seller is "gardyne-vermont" and is located in this country: US.

This item can be shipped to United States.
