English Art Deco Chrome-Plated Trench Art Five-Piece Figural Small Fire-Tool Set

US$975per set

About

This charming English Art Deco, chrome-plated, trench/outsider art small companion or fire-tool set is comprised of a two dimensional nude female figure with incised details on either side. She kneels on a bevel edged plinth and in her raised arm is a cruciform carousel that holds coke fuel tongs, a hearth-brush, a poker and a scissor style anthracite gripper. The small size of the components of this set indicates that it was designed specifically for the smaller solid fuel, cast iron fireplaces found in upstairs bedrooms of English inter-war houses. This great fire-tool set is in excellent condition, displays like an outsider art sculpture, has its original chrome and only the hearth brush shows its age.
