The back panel is 17 tall at the crest which is decorated with a stylized sunburst design. The front panel measures 10 1/2 tall- front has a bombe shape and the front and sides are fenestrated.
The panel inside the box that can be removed or tilted to clean out the ashes is not original to the piece- it leaves a little gap at the back but it stays in place it will not tip as it is just a hair to big but someone has added a few screws to hold it in place and it will act as a stationary grate to keep the coal or wood from falling through.. The grate has some surface rust and is a little dirty but no cracks or repairs.
