Circa 1850, early Victorian Dutch conical brass and copper coal hod. The stylish coal hod, in typical Dutch fashion, with its domed top surmounted by a stylish finial in the form of an urn. The body of the coal hod is made of copper but riveted. There are lifting arms attached on either side and through this is a solid brass rod which has been formed to make the lifting handle. The bottom of the coal hod has a copper base which has been formed and folded into the copper base, and the whole piece stands on three elegant, stylish turned finials in cast brass. Clean, stylish and functional.
