A charming Aesthetic Movement fire grate with a central sunflower radiating from the shaped back plate, which is echoed by the finely cast brass sunflower finials crowning the andirons. These frame the front bars, which are elegantly bowed, and just beneath them are delicate fan spandrels.
English, c.1890.

The sunflower was considered the emblem of the Aesthetic Movement in Britain, its proponents believing it to signify lasting happiness and adoration – key principles of aestheticism. The movement embodied the principle of Art for Art's sake, and focused on beauty and harmony in its purest visual form.
