A Cast Iron Nautilus Antique Fire Grate


Stock No.8045

A large cast iron and bronze " Nautilus " log grate made in the nineteenth century by The Nautilus Fire Company of Yeovil, Somerset. The side floral decoration in the Renaissance manner, on four iron wheels, the front bar posts with large bronze spiral finials, a scrolled bronze canopy which revolves forward and back to reduce the airflow, and bronze trim either side.
English mid to late 19th century.

NOTES : When Queen Victoria had Nautilus fire grates installed at Balmoral Castle and Osborne House demand for them grew substantially. The design by the Petter family firm was based on the internal shape of the Nautilus shell by means of which the fumes and smoke circulated in a chamber before being drawn out through the flue.
