Arts & Crafts Copper Coal Box c.1900

Arts & Crafts copper coal box in the manner of Liberty & Co c.1900. Sloped top box with a hinged lid, probably originally intended for coal, it would make a great little box for logs, or kindling and firelighters etc beside a log burner. In pine covered with beaten copper across the top front and sides with lovely Arts & Crafts style raised repoussé spade or bulb motifs to the lid and front plus similarly shaped applied iron straps to the lid. Raised on castors. Pesented as found with some obvious wear, the base would appear to have been replaced at some point.
