This piece is used to hold firewood, kindling or coal near the fireplace. Done in hammered brass, the Victorian scene is on the top and front and the scene on the 2 sides look like multiple flowers. The box is wood under the brass with a hinged lid. This has been in my parent’s house for as long as I can remember. It’s a beautiful box in great vintage condition.
The brass is bright with a few areas of patina noted. This would not be limited to holding firewood, of course. It could be used to store anything you choose!
The inside is black and a little dusty, but no other defects have been noted.
