This auction is for a fabulous early Victorian antique brass ‘helmet shape’ coal bucket in excellent condition in the traditional English manner, plus antique shovel.

This is a highly useful and very functional item, which also has an attractive décor feature beyond its obvious utilitarian function.

This classical coal scuttle has the preferred ‘swing’ handle, rather than a fixed handle, and is among the most attractively proportioned of any I have seen over a lifetime of collecting.

The antique shovel which accompanies this coal scuttle is made of brass and has a beautifully turned knopped wooden handle which is fitted into an attractive conforming brass escutcheon itself securely attached to the blade of the shovel with three brass rivets.

I have owned these items for more than twenty five years and, reluctantly, am now parting with them for no other reason than I no longer have a fireplace!

Auction includes free carbonettes as shown in photo!

Dimensions (approx.):
Height: 44 cm with handle raised and 30cmm with handle down.
Depth x Width: 38 x 30 cm

Excellent condition for age. Quality craftsmanship.

Note: I have an almost identical matching coal scuttle, plus copper antique shovel, on another auction if you are seeking a pair.

I am moving house and in order to downsize, I need to reduce my collection of antique and interesting décor items. You might like to look at my other listings which include similar and/or related items which are now surplus to our requirements.
