A very good Mid 19th. Century Brass Fender with curved front corners and open fret detail between bands of rope twist, raised on a steel plinth and retaining the original tool stands at both ends fitted with a brush, poker, tongs and shovel. It is extremely rare to see one in such original and complete state.
The tools are marked twice “Made in England” which helps us to date this to about 1850. This system was used from 1842 – 1881 as a means of protecting a particular pattern (or shape of ware) from piracy for a three-year period.
