Arts & Crafts Copper Log Bin*
Handsome Arts & Crafts copper coal or log bin, decorated on the lid with an Art Nouveau repoussé design of winding stems and leaves, together with a row of flowers along the top, all framing a large central heart.
The bin is roughly square in section, raised on an inward tapering base and then tapering outwards on all four sides with the back being higher than the front.
This has the effect of sloping the lid forwards so that the very eyecatching design faces forwards.
The front and back are undecorated with the sides featuring an S-shaped riveted join extending down and over the base.
A cupped handle is positioned on each side and the lid is raised via a small swing handle at the front.
There is no internal liner, this presumably long having passed its sell-by date as is so often the case.
Dating from around 1900-1905 and, typically, showing no maker’s mark.
Height is approximately 49.5 cm with the lid closed, and a touch under 79 cm when raised. The lid measures around 32.5 cm across the bac, hinged edge, 29 across the front and is 33 cm deep. The base is approximately 26 cm square.
