Copper and Brass Log Bin*
Impressive and good sized Arts & Crafts log or coal bin fashioned from copper and brass.
With wonderfully deep Art Nouveau influenced repoussé work on all four copper faces. The front and back show a peacock perched on a rustic fence in a countryside setting, and the two sides are each decorated with a large old tree.
Two comfortable brass handles applied to the sides are further embellished with a leafy design and there is hammered brass detail on the corners, the feet and around the rim of the lid which also has a stylised flower bud shaped knob on the top.
The removable interior container has seen better days but is still just about serviceable.
Dating from around 1910 with no signature or marks but beautifully made and obviously by a true craftsman. The height is around 43 cm and the maximum width, including the handles, is 41 cm.
