Steel Club Fender With Leather Seat.
A wonderful club fender with square wrought iron uprights with swirls, shaped oak base and with the front open in a half circle for access to the fire. The upholstered L shaped leather seat is 8 inches wide with the measurements inside the seat being 44½ inches wide and 14 inches deep. The idea with the open front of the fender is to retain access to the fire and to allow more heat to escape into the room. With a fender you add an extra dimension to a fireplace by providing more seating. Fenders were all the rage in the late eighteenth and early nineteenth centuries and were found in Gentleman's Clubs, libraries and billiard rooms of country houses.
