A rare and important pierced and engraved steel George III antique fire grate. It was manufactured in bright steel with very finely engraved foliate and acanthus detailing, applied beading, a skirt of lozenge paterae and lidded urn shaped finials set above chamfered engraved legs..

This large fire basket is from a design by Robert Adam, and probably made in the late 18th century by an iron founder one Henry Jackson of Saffron Hill, Smithfield in London. A similar grate is in the Victoria & Albert Museum, South Kensington and there are a further two in the 18th century Spencer House in St. James's, London.
English, circa 1810.
