Seller: acatsgrin11 (429) 97.3% , Location: Hilton Head Island, South Carolina, Ships to: US, Item: 262631556703 Hi.This set is the real thing, not a reproduction. I believe this set is from mid 1800s. The stand is brass plated cast iron and very worn due to age as you see in pics. Hog bristle sweep also very worn but original. The handles of the impiments are wooden and very solid. I like the poker which sets the age as well. No attempt has been made to recondition this set. I think that reduces the value of the item.
