A polished steel Georgian antique Summer Grate



Stock No.13829

A very fine antique pierced and engraved, polished steel Georgian Summer Grate showing the influence of Robert Adam (1728-1792). The squared backplate sits behind the three barred fire basket which is mounted by two pairs of urn finials and has a delicately engraved detail on the edging flanked by beaded shoulders etched with lozenge cut paterae. The chamfered legs have further lozenge cut paterae.
English circa 1780.

Notes: This type of grate was called a dog grate but became more commonly known as a "Summer Grate" because the more decorative etched front had the option to be lifted off, as a protection against any possible heat damage, when the fire was lit in winter months. This would reveal the more simply designed second grate front as shown in the last image.
