Swaledale Basic (21")

Our Price: £129.00


The Swaledale (or dog grate) is a traditional cast-iron fire-basket with a separate bottom grate and ashpan cover. This basket, which first appeared in the Dale Range of Firemaster Dog Grates in the 1920’s, has a length of 515mm (21”) and is available as a Basic version or with a Back Plate.
The Swaledale comes in a matt black finish as standard buts looks stunning with an antique or grate polish finish (similar to the old fashioned black lead).  Optional extras include Ashpan F40 (for solid fuel) and cast-iron fire brick F40 to protect the fire back from heavy usage. The Swaledale arrives in flat pack form but is easy to assemble.
The Swaledale Basket is capable of use as a real fire in the right situation but can also be adapted to an electric effect, gas coal effect or used with bio-ethanol fuel. It also lends itself to simply sit on a hearth or in an inglenook as a feature decorated with logs, coals or pine cones.

Perfect with bioethanol burner inside

Great product at a good price, very heavy and well made, perfect size for a large bioethanol burner which fits with plenty of room. It comes with bottom plate though I prefer not to use it and have it all open, looks lovely I'm very happy with it.

Good company who rang to make sure I was home for delivery, nice delivery driver who carried it into my sitting room for me.

Wouldn't hesitate to use again.
