This is 19 7/8" wide and 6" tall as measured from the "maximum points". This grate is structurally sound. While there may be a couple of small chips if you look real hard, there are no cracks.The "hangers" on the back are intact. There is some surface rust, as seen in the images, that you could remove if desired (if you know how to clean an old rusted cast iron pan, you'll know how to clean this) as well as other minor surface imperfections. If I had to guess, I'd guess that this hung on a wall as a heat register grate.
Alternatively, perhaps it laid flat on the floor. Or maybe it wasn't used for heating at all and is actually from an old wood stove? Please refer to the images to form your own conclusions about cosmetic condition.
Your opinions take precedence over any subjective opinion of mine - including that this just looks great just as a decoration. When I wiped this off with a damp cloth I noticed how much it "popped"; you might want to consider cleaning this to your liking and then applying a coat of poly to it (if using as a decoration). The photos show this all dull as I had allowed it to dry before taking the photos. Please feel free to ask any questions that you may have. Internal code: r-hu-93-31...2147/5.12/23x10x3.
