GENEROUS AND GRAND:
A very fine giant of a grate, in the early Georgian style, fashioned in polished steel and cast iron, it's breadth and depth speaking of strength and presence. The large basket with a pair of stylised polished steel finials is fronted by a cut steel serpentine apron centred by a boar's head amid scrolling floral motifs supported on either side by a pair of tall standards with elongated polished steel urn finials above simple column legs.
English early 19th century.
