Lot details

Boot Scrapers: A pair of rare Kenrick foundry bronze boot scrapers in oval cast iron bases

circa 1870

28cm high by 34cm long

 

It is unusual to find examples in bronze rather than cast iron.

Condition report
Some rust pitting on inside of drip trays. Each boot scraper is cast in two halves in brass/bronze with an iron sheet for actually scraping your boot between them. Overall nice condition with some peeling paint on base and rust showing through but otherwise nice antique condition with no visible losses or damages.
