Seller: frantique2000 (10,348) 99.9%, Location: Yorkshire, Ships to: Worldwide, Item: 311740926471 This is made from vitreous enamel fused onto cast iron.The French enamelled cast iron until they mastered the art, craft and science necessary with sheet steel. Late 1800s.The iron is lightly scored to assist adhesion - the striations are visible through the enamel.Enamel in bas relief - exquisite craftsmanship.Very heavy gauge. Weighs 1150 grams, more than some street signs and more than twice the weight of the heaviest sheet steel examples.6½" high 11¼" wide.From a property in Lyon. Likely made in or around Le Creusot (not Creuset), the home of the French Industrial Revolution and a little north in Burgundy.This is the real thing from a real house in real France. Not a copy, not made yesterday. I've only ever seen three such examples - and recently sold a matching one on eBay for £80.This is a piece of industrial art in its own right.
