A monumental Coalbrookdale antique cast iron Victorian fire grate

Stock No.14374

A rare and monumental cast iron Coalbrookdale antique fire grate with an elaborately scrolled backplate featuring a playful goat peering over the rim. The substantial basket, with a strapwork apron centred by a lion mask, is supported by a pair of large and powerful panther head standards. Provenance: ' 65 The Coalbrookdale Company registered September 6th 1841 number 814 ' - can clearly be seen on the back.
English, early to mid 19th century.

Notes: The Coalbrookdale Company, a foundry in Shropshire established in 1709, is probably most famous for building the world's first cast iron bridge erected and opened at Ironbridge in 1780, but it was also noted for its decorative ironwork an example of which are one of a set of gates opening into London's Hyde Park. The blast furnaces were closed down around 1820 but the foundries remained in use.
