The coolest item at The Flea this weekend was without a doubt this old iron fireplace that Clinton Hill resident and regular vendor David Sokosh had for sale over near the backstop. (He ended up selling it for $50.) While the exterior frame is instantly recognizable as the semi-circular edge of a fireplace, the guts of this piece are less familiar. Turns out it's an apparatus for burning coal. Pretty neat. Anyone have one of these still installed in a fireplace at home?
