A late Victorian steel and engraved brass Georgian style fire grate. The arched back plate with a depiction of a pair of angelic mermaids, rests behind the grate which has engraved detail on the brass shoulders, with beaded edging, surmounted by a pair of small urn finials. The pierced and engraved apron is embellished with linked lozenge medallions and further beaded edging. The whole is supported to the front by a pair of engraved and tapering standards surmounted by a larger pair of urn finials.
