For the love of Dogs! This Victorian collectible certainly looks like man's best friend. It has a glow that makes me think it's pewter rather than spelter. The old red velvet cushion seems to be original, and has been restitched with some of the original sawdust leaked out. I actually have the sawdust and will refill and stitch if you prefer. Such a fine addition to your dog or sewing implement collection! Thank you for visiting!

This well worn coal scuttle appears to have served well in the past and can continue to provide a decorative and useful accent at your hearth! It has the original black tongs, and intact handles, and seems to have a double bottom to protect from hot coals. It's only adornment is the two simple lines of gilt at the top and bottom. Measures 15" tall X 11" across. Chippy paint and slight rust as shown in photos, but it is very solid and HEAVY.
