In the 18th century, the well-appointed fireplace was never considered complete unless it included a cast iron fireback. Today, the fireback's usefulness and charm have been rediscovered and are again at the center of the hearth and home.
The Joseph Webb Stag Fireback, a pre-revolutionary trade card engraved by Paul Revere for Webb's store located it as being "near Oliver's Dock". This highly detailed fireback features a significantly arched top distinguishing it from the more traditional firebacks adding a truly unique look to your fireplace. Although the original was probably cast and shipped from Maryland, the original purpose remains with us today. Positioned against the back wall of your fireplace, it provides protection for the masonry from deterioration; and by reflecting light and heat from the fire; it radiates heat from the fire forward into the room.
A fireback 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 26" Wide x 28" High. 93 lbs.
