There is a trapdoor insert in the bottom that can swivel to tip out the ashes and remains of the previous fire. The grate is in nice sturdy condition.
There is some surface rust. There are foundry numbers but no foundry makers mark. I think this dates to the first half of the 20th century although the style is late Victorian/Edwardian.
