The history of Catoctin Furnace represents in small-scale version the history of the Industrial Revolution in America. From 1776 to 1903 several different iron companies mined the rich ore banks near Catoctin Mountain, smelted it in furnaces, and cast both raw pig iron and iron implements of every description. This Catoctin Fireback is a tribute to that fine history.
This wonderful Catoctin Fireback lends an authentic feel to any hearth and so much more for your home. Positioned against the back wall of your fireplace, a fireback protects the masonry from deterioration;
and by reflecting light and heat from the fire, it radiates heat from the fire forward
into the room.
A fire back lends visual warmth and interest to a hearth whether it's with a
roaring fire, or soft candlelight. Our original cast iron fireback designs were
created by artist J. Del Conner. A mark of quality and authenticity is engraved
on the back of each casting. Measures 22 5/8" Wide x 21 3/4" High. 68 lbs.
