    Hi,
    First view. It looks like a made up piece, Arts and Craft

    Hard to tell from Photograph but looks like a Doulton Barrel drilled and a pole put trough it with tankards placed on it.

    May be better to bring the item in to the shop or take a number of photographs including the underneath
    all the best

    will try and pop in. its definitely not a made up piece and is cast iron same as the dutch boy and bilston knights companion sets. there is a reg number inside the barrel and each piece tongs, brush, poker and shovel is also got individual reg numbers on

    Hi,
    Now I get the gist.


    dutch boy and bilston knights companion sets. there is a reg number inside the barrel and each piece tongs, brush, poker and shovel is also got individual reg numbers on
    You did not tell me this on the first post.

    I thought the Cast iron items was the tankards. not realising they are the handles.
    I also thought the barrel was of a Ceramic make up.

    Yes unusual a few have sold in auction over the years.

    Look forward to you calling in
