Seller: cariboocollectibles (23) 100%, Location: Mission, British Columbia, Ships to: CA, US, Item: 263962176306 Antique Adjustable Brass Metal Fireplace Fender, Hearth Guard Surround, Hand Made. This is an early 20th Century brass fireplace fender. Full of age and charm, it's a lovely fireside accessory that would make a glorious focal point in a room. Also known as a hearth guard or fireplace surround, this unique artisan fender features brass sheeting throughout, hand-tooled for a rustic look. The ends are capped with thick solid brass plates, and the underside is painted with black enamel. The corners are adorned with reinforced ornate brass caps. It's adjustable: Both ends slide into a brass center section, which is hollow all the way through. The ends of the fenders can be slid through to any desired size. MEASUREMENTS: Extendable from 48" to 60". The smallest it will go down to is 48" (inside the center sleeve). The center section is 15½" long, thus it's realistic to assume that the whole thing will extend to 60". Side ends measures 14½" long. It stands 3½" tall. Weighted for added heft (I think it has a wooden inner frame), it weighs around 11 pounds. Refer to photo #7 where there is a true 36" yardstick placed for size reference. NOTE: Folding fireplace screen NOT included. CONDITION: Chock-full of wonderful aged patina. Historic knocks, marks and wear as one would expect (and want) to see. One of the end caps is missing a screw. No international shipping, but feel free to contact us and we'll provide a real-time shipping rate to your location.
