This beautiful reproduction of a fireback that is thought to have been cast at Pine Grove furnace between the years 1770 and 1780. Located in south central Pennsylvania, Pine Grove Furnace was built in 1770 by Robert Thornburg and John Arthur. Now a state park and historic site, Pine Grove Furnace was in operation until 1864.
The classical urn with flowers and birds motif was one of the most popular designs for firebacks in the late eighteenth century America.
