Not sure on the exact age of this coal basket but I suspect early 1900s. It appears to have been rarely used. The only crack I found is at the top rear heart shape joint and I suspect this is original to the casting. There is no evidence of heat damage.
The tilt bottom insert which allows ashes to be dropped out has a bit of corrosion but nothing significant. I estimate this basket has 95% of its useful life remaining. The piece is marked 50-18 but I cannot find a maker name. Basket measures 17.5 wide by 9 deep by 9.5 tall.
The legs elevated the grate bottom about 5. Ships to lower 48 states only and no PO Boxes. The item "Antique Victorian Cast Iron Fireplace Fire Basket Coal Box Grate Tilt Bottom" is in sale since Saturday, August 24, 2019.
