Now this is eye candy. We found this little gem on ebay, after realizing we needed some sort of hod/scuttle/bucket to pour pellets in the stove (after making several giant messes with them). The seller was willing to negotiate on shipping, and next thing you know, we got this lovely arts & crafts style, hand-hammered, heavy coal scuttle. Nothing like an early X-mas present to yourself, eh? It cost less than a boring, machine made, modern ugly coal hod. So far, not much mess. And it looks so damn good, who cares how it works? (Frank Lloyd Wright, I hope you didn't hear that).
