Very Special Signed Piece From World Renowned Foundry. Very Rare - Near (if not) Museum Quality. Victorian Porcelain Cast Iron Coal Scuttle. High Relief Victorian Scroll Design.4 Perfect Feet on Surround. Gate Marked (pre 1890 casting). (see below for more details). This very rare near museum quality piece (I only say that, "near" to cover any very tiny minute imperfections should your eye be more scrupulous than mine), but certainly... Therefore, it my very well qualify for a museum collection. Amazing design aspects and workmanship in this piece... Truly mind boggling that it survived in this condition all these years. Acquired from a serious collection in Ashville, NC... This was obviously used at some point (as there is still ash residue in its belly) but I believe it was appreciated greatly for what aesthetic beauty it has and was therefore put on display or stored away. This color (dark green Porcelain Enamel) is the signature color for the products from this superior foundry dating back all the way to 1854 when it began. Famous for their Cast Iron Stoves, and other products... The quality from the Nestor Martin foundry is known world wide.
This is a signed piece "1577" "FONDERIES NESTOR MARTIN" under the lid... And also as "1577" and the company emblem, under its belly... This one is the original, and bears the full foundry name and number.It is also Gate Marked which is the single "V" shaped ridge under the belly, indicating its casting method, and age (pre 1890). You are seeing the pictures as acquired, needing nothing to be done to the beautiful porcelain, and only recently cleaned of some minor ash residue on the outside of its belly, and coated with black outside only (inside left as is showing some ash residue). For discerning collectors, who only desire the best of the best high end antiques... This fantastic acquisition is just waiting and ready for your collection. Dimensions: 22" Length - 14" Width - 12 Tall Weighs 26 Lbs - 7 Oz (unboxed). Nobody packs and ships expensive items as I do. We cut custom formed styrofoam surrounds for items such as this...
