This is an absolutely gorgeous cast iron fireplace cover of a girl swinging high up in the branches of a tree with swallows flying in the sky behind her.  Purely Victorian and oh so romantic. Very Heavy cast iron.  Measures 26 1/2 inches tall X 2 feet wide. What a great piece in any room in the house as a wall hanging as it is or framed.  A very special piece indeed.

Beautiful pair French Brass/Glass Chenets. This is a very elegant pair for a small fireplace in a ladies boudoir. The glass is blown with pink flowers blown inside the glass.  The base is a curved gracefully fashioned brass with brass separating each piece of glass and finished with brass finials on top.  There are two cracked places unfortunately in one of the bottom glass pieces and one of the top, but still a work of art.  Therefore I am asking only a fraction of what they are worth.  These would be exclusively for a decorative effect in the fireplace.
