Antique Victorian Coal Scuttle

Our lovely scuttle is no longer required as we tend to burn more logs these days than coal.

A brief description:

Solidly constructed of polished wood, it measures 42cms long x 29cms wide x 29 cms high.

There is a strong brass handle to the top for carriage, combined with two brass hinges to open the front cover.

There is an inner steel liner which is mainly in mainly good condition, but with some wear to the base which in no way detracts from the scuttle and its daily usage.

There is a small steel shovel to the rear that slots into a steel holder

The scuttle sits on four wooden base supports to keep the body of the scuttle raised off the carpet.

We have the scuttle in our lounge with a near white (carpet!) and never are we concerned about spillage of coal or dust etc. from the scuttle. This is mainly due to the inner steel liner having a raised section at the front to prevent any spillage

We bought the scuttle from an antique dealer in Hexham in 1979, so guess it may have been originally made in the 50’s or perhaps slightly earlier.

We are easy to find in Tynemouth just minutes from the Metro, and can offer directions.

The scuttle can be easily carried if travelling on foot

Many thanks for looking at this scuttle.
