Description

A lovely Arts and Crafts Fireside Companion set of compact proportions in anodized copper. Featuring a rectangular plinth and tubular columns supporting a curved decorative panel with 4 angled tool rests. The tools, which all feature pierced, circular finials, include a poker, tongs, dustpan and brush. The panel has an image of a galleon in full sail (a typical Arts and Crafts motif) framed by upper and lower decorative borders, all decorated in relief. 

Condition Report

Good vintage condition – the companion set shows typical, age-related, signs of copper wear and deterioration giving the piece an authentic period feel. The screw attachment for the tongs is loose and one of the rivets for the dustpan (where pan attached to handle) has failed providing a slightly loose, albeit useable, connection.
