A rare and important cut, etched and engraved steel George III antique fire grate. It is made in bright cut steel with very finely etched and engraved foliate and acanthus designs, applied beading, a skirt of lozenge cut paterae and with lidded urn shaped finials set above chamfered etched legs.

This large fire basket is from a design by Robert Adam, and probably made in the late 18th century by an iron founder one Henry Jackson of Saffron Hill, Smithfield in London. A similar grate is in the Victoria & Albert Museum, South Kensington and there are a further two in the 18th century Spencer House in St. James's, London.
English, circa 1810.
