You just don't see them like this very often, with the natural patina that only time and the elements could provide. This grate is huge it measures about 28 3/4" by about 22 5/8".
This is one of a pair of grates that was made by Ruttan Manufacturing Company of Chicago Illinois the other grate is stamped. I can't really say enough about the quality and the intense visual display that these grates provide so I will let the photos do the talking.
