Victorian antique purdonium with exquisite and extremely ornate, hand carved decorative pattern. Of fine quality and excellent craftsmanship, very hard to see nowadays, this dazzling coal scuttle is entirely made of good, thick and heavy solid oak wood with a lovely colour and grain. Extremely decorative, it will be a fabulous focal point by the fireplace! It has been much loved and well looked after over the years as can be seen by its excellent condition with a lovely patina only minor signs of wear: there is a very tinny chip/crack to the top and there are some wooden caps missing on one lateral side, which is quite hard to notice, as the purdonium is so ornate and rich in detail. It has a very solid and sturdy frame with all parts, handle, hinges and lid knob, securely attached in place.
