RRP: £238.00

Our Price: £209.00


The Swaledale Basket (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 choice of Back Plates (Tudor Rose or Lion).
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.​
