A very elegant brass coal bucket which can equally be used for logs or even flowers. It is not too heavy but sturdy enough to hold heavy item well. It has clear signs of being used for these purposes in the past as the surface is covered in little bulges and marks through knocks and bumps. This just adds to it's story and personality. It is a very tactile item and would grace any fireplace from any era.

The dimensions given are with the handle down. When the handle is up it measures approx 51cm.

The item can be viewed and picked up from either our shop at ME9 nr Faversham or headquarters at SE9 Eltham London, alternatively, postage or delivery to some parts of the UK can be arranged at an extra cost.


  • H: 31cm (12.20in)
  • W: 40cm (15.75in)
  • D: 32cm (12.60in)

I started collecting antiques over 40 years ago, bunking school to go to Leicester antiques market on a Thursday lunchtime. My first passion was with small engraved Edwardian glasses which I could pick up for 5-15p each.   

40 years later and having spent 30 years teaching design and then another 4 years in my vintage tea rooms, all the while collecting all sorts of vintage and antique pieces, I decided I would start to sell some of the beautiful items I as picking up. 

I visit France several times a year and love to bring back quirky furniture, kitchenalia or a beautiful weathered confit pot. However, when travel is limited, I scour the UK for those unusual items. If there is a particular item, I can help you find in France, then don’t hesitate to ask. 

I trade from a wonderful antiques emporium near Faversham called Wildwinds which has over 20 dealers and often appears on ‘Antiques Road Trip’. Items can be viewed there or from my home in South East London. Although I don’t have a website, I use Instagram regularly and have a Facebook page. 

You can often find me at Detling antiques fair, weather permitting, where I love to talk to my customers helping them find the perfect piece.
