Copper Firewood Holder

A socalled 'ferrat' from the the Auvergne, France. Old copper container reinforced with a frame and adorned with copper bands with which the women went to fetch water. They wore it either on the head, protecting themselves with a small rag crown or on the hip with a cushion, hence the usefulness of the handles on either side of the object.

Classification: ***: Very good condition, limited wear given the age and use. **: Clear signs of wear and possible structural problems including small instabilities. Still well suited for use in an open fireplace. *: Structural instability that hinders function other than decorative. For example, open fireplace tongs with a loose mechanism so that the ends can overlap. A fireback in this classification can still be used in a gas fireplace or as a backsplash.
