Next Piece

Fireplace Fender, Ca. 1830

A vigorously curved serpentine shaped fireplace fender made of brass and iron. This has an infrequently seen cross brace between the ends of the serpentine curves. This is the first time I have seen brass feet that resemble the base of some Boston classical andirons.
