Antique Christian cast-iron fireback
Antique Christian cast-iron fireback : This antique cast-iron fireback is particularly heavyweight, and features the Cross in the simplest iconic forms, with the triangular base hinting at the Cross of Crucifixion. Although the provenance is unknown we assume it to be no more recent than 19th century, coming from a religious building such as a presbytery or vicarage.
