A rare cast iron Coalbrookdale firegrate made in the Rococo Revival style with an unusual serpentine, lobed back behind the bow fronted two bar basket. The apron, bearing a central zoomorphic mask, is flanked by scrolled acanthus enriched sides supported on scrolled acanthus clad legs raised on block feet. The last image below is from an illustration in the Coalbrookdale Castings Catalogue, shown for use within their dramatic Shakespearean 'Tempest' figural chimneypiece. English, circa 1850.

Notes: Coalbrookdale is a village in the Ironbridge Gorge in Shropshire, England, containing a settlement of great significance in the history of iron ore smelting. The Coalbrookdale Company and Foundry was established by Abraham Darby in 1701.
