6, 10 and 14

Both these items have been donated by Harley Marshall. They were obtained from the Stein Castlecary Works.

One is marked 6 or 9  and the other 14.

Harley states these were Thistle products.

He recalls they were designed for pot belly stove type fires. The would have slotted in and  formed the ‘floor’ of the stove.

Not sure how this would have worked with regards allowing ashes to riddle through?
