Here for sale is a fantastic antique newspaper log roller. These were used to roll used newspapers in to "logs" to start fires and probably used by a butler. Could still be used for that purpose or just as a piece of quirky collectible history. Dating from the early to middle part of the 20th Century, cast iron ends and wooden carrying handle. Perfect as a decorative fireplace accessory to add soul and personality to a modern interior.


This piece is untested. Shows signs of wear and tear as it is old and has been used, but only adds to its character. Great decorative item which would look fantastic in any home or business interior.

Please look at photos closely as they form part of the item description.


54 cm width including handle, 20 cm depth, 37 cm height
