The back is approximately 14" tall and the front is 11 1/2". This old fire grate shows signs of age and use such as scratches, scuffs and rust One of the screws holding in a wheel is a bit bent. I'm sure this would not be hard to remove and replace but it seems to sit level with it this way so I left it alone.
These can be rusted with muriatic acid to match the rest of the cast iron if desired. Overall I think this piece has a great antique look as it is or it could be restored further if you prefer. Please review the pictures to best determine the condition for yourself and feel free to ask any questions!
