A very attractive, reclaimed, reproduction cast iron fire back. The fire back is a reproduction of a traditional, period, style from the 1600's and this is illustrated with a date of 1635 on the fire. The fire back has a traditional crest with a lion and unicorn on either side and a crown at the top. There is writing on the base of the fire back and surrounding the crest but it is unreadable. The fire back has a shaped top and a raised border around the edges. The fire back is perfect for pairing with a fire basket or grate. The iron has been blacked and polished and has a lovely finish. The fire back is solid and heavy but is reclaimed and therefore has some slight signs of use and wear. There are some casting marks and scratches to the front and there is some surface rust to the back. The fire back has a very elaborate design and it is a desirable item that would add great character and charm to a fireplace.
