Offered for your consideration is a superb English Victorian brass skimmer. This brass skimmer is of high quality and has been lovingly used.
This beautiful and large skimmer measures 20 inches long and 7 1/4 inches wide. It is embellished with hand etched scroll designs and lovely copper rivets. It is decorated with stylized cutouts including an oval and keyhole. The brass is of heavy gauge.
The front of this skimmer is bright and shiny and has been polished by me. I like shiny things! The back of the handle does not have the scroll designs but is shiny as well. The skimmer portion of the back of the piece has some blackening. I could not polish this away. I suspect this is from use over the fire all those years ago. This does not take away from the the beauty of the piece. Also please note that because of glare it can be difficult to photograph shiny objects. Please be sure to see all of the photos!
This skimmer would look fantastic hanging next to your fireplace, glimmering in the firelight. The skimmer would feel right at home again as I am certain that is where it spent many happy years.
This piece is offered exclusively on Ruby Lane. I guarantee all of my antique and vintage items to be 100% authentic.
Thank you for your interest!
