A reclaimed, vintage, cast iron fire back. The heavy fire back has an ornate appearance and the design is a very nice vintage reproduction of period designs. The fire back depicts a cherub on a wine barrel, perhaps a representation of Bacchus. The main cherub is surrounded by vines and grapes and there are two cherubs at the top of the fire back with bread in the centre, representing a land of plenty. The iron has been blacked and polished and the fire back has a good finish. The fire back is in good solid condition with some small signs of age and use. There are some small knocks, chips and casting marks. Please see pictures for condition details. The fire back has an interesting and attractive design and could be used with a fire basket or for decorative purposes within a hearth.
