Purdonium is a trade name for a type of coal box or coal scuttle that has a removable metal lining. This allowed the messy and noisy work of refilling the box to take place away from the firesides of the 19th-century middle classes while maintaining the pristine condition of the elegant wood outer box.
This Mahogany Purdonium has a drop down door and a removable galvanized steel liner. This would make an interesting chair side or lamp table. Would also work for magazine storage or as a holder for wood or kindling.
