Metal and copper, in good condition

Decorative metal coal bunker with its original copper scoop.
This coal bunker comes from an old Frisian farmhouse.
The coal bunker is decorated at the top with 2 mm thick copper hinges of no less than 26 cm long.
Large brass handle and a very special unlock button designed in the shape of a polished diamond.
The bunker rests on 4 solid lion paws.
At the back of the bunker there is a metal band in which a large brass scoop is held.
After nearly a hundred years, the scoop has become beautifully worn on the front. Above the wood there is yet another brass button.

In this bunker, you can store your firewood or firelighters.
Decorative next to the fireplace or wood burner.
The set has a beautiful patina and signs of wear, all of which can be seen in the pictures, and give the item its character and appeal.
You will not encounter a similar bunker anytime soon.

Dimensions bunker: 30 cm wide, 48 cm long, 35 cm high. Weight: 4.7 kg
Dimensions scoop: 40 cm long and 12 cm wide. Weight: 0.6 kg.
Will be carefully packaged, and shipped by registered and insured mail (with Track & Trace number). Collection is also a possibility, of course.
