An interesting Arts and Crafts fire basket, the back panel depicting the Day of Judgement within a medieval scene complete with a hilltop castle. God appears from swirling clouds, holding a ladder on which an angel pulls up the souls of the redeemed. In the foreground a crowd gathers around a hole where a man is being plunged into the depths of hell. This figure is intended to be licked by the flames of the fire in the grate, adding to the dramatic effect. The stylised sunflower brass andirons turn slightly outwards and are mounted on tapered legs.
