    A large cast iron fireplace backplate illustrating scenes from the The Nibelungenlied, translated as The Song of the Nibelungs an epic poem in Middle High German. The story tells of dragon-slayer Siegfried at the court of the Burgundians, how he was murdered, and of his wife Kriemhild's revenge.

    ..."To us in olden story / are wonders many told
    Of heroes rich in glory, / of trials manifold:
    Of joy and festive greeting, / of weeping and of woe,
    Of keenest warriors meeting, / shall ye now many a
    wonder know"....

    Probably 19th century.

    Notes: The Nibelungenlied is based on pre-Christian Germanic heroic motifs (the "Nibelungensaga"), which include oral traditions and reports based on historic events and individuals of the 5th and 6th centuries. Old Norse parallels of the legend survive in the Völsunga saga, the Prose Edda, the Poetic Edda, the Legend of Norna-Gest, and the Þiðrekssaga.
