FX0006 A Large and Heavy Reproduction Cast Iron Fire Back
A very heavy and attractive reclaimed, reproduction, cast iron fire back. The item depicts classical figures, a chariot and peacocks, a scene copied from early fire backs. The item has a beautifully shaped top piece with scrolling detail. There is a beaded border around the main scene and further decoration. The fire back is very soild and well constructed and has been blacked and polished to give a high shine finish. The item would compliment a decorative fire basket and would add character and design to a hearth. The fire back is reclaimed and therefore has some slight signs of wear. The back has some surface rust as expected. Some casting marks and slight pitting can be seen. Very small patches of tarnish can be seen on the front face. A very well made and heavy fire back that would be ideal for a cottage or period home.
