Antique Fire Fender with Greyhound Finials
A superb 19th Century extending fire fender. The base is made of iron and joined with a brass bar with a pair of elegant reclining Greyhounds on each end above an ornate brass floral mount. The fender can be extended by a few inches either end by moving the brass rod. At its shortest it is approximatley 43 1/2" (111cm) long and this can be extended up to 48" (122cm).
It is in good condition for its age. It has been cleaned and lightly polished and has developed a superb patination over the years. The right hand greyhound has had a small repair to a break on his front legs (see photo) and there is a small dent towards the back of the fender but neither are particularly detrimental and it displays beautifully.
The best description comes from the photos so please look at them all carefully and if you have any questions please ask.
