Seller: totherafters (16,265) 100%, Location: Macon, Georgia, Ships to: US, Item: 112212872054 Please scroll down under this description for additional views. Circa 1890 ornamental cast iron fireplace cover, often called a summer cover since it hid the dirty black cavern of the fireplace during warm months, adding a touch of decoration and keeping the room clean. This cover measures 20" wide and 23" high with a slight outward curve at the top and truncated corners at the top. The center image shows a woman's head in profile surrounded by a sun ray design. Over the sun ray design is a tiny shield flanked by fanciful dragons. The outer design is a border of scrolls, leaves, berries and fleur-de-lis. There is a nice handle at the top that is cast of a separate piece of iron. The maker of the piece created the surround and then created a separate insert for the middle- they probably had a variety of inserts that could be chosen for these frames. The insert is clearly marked PATENTED on the back, also marked "32" for the style. The company trademark appears as a pendant around the neck of the figure on the back side- hard to make out the overlapped letters but it looks like SECo. The nuts and bolts that hold the center piece in place are pretty rusty so I would proceed with caution before attempting to remove the center piece. There is surface rust on the back side- very little on the front which is painted black but has some drips of gray paint on it.
