Remember If you don't try you'll never know what you could have had. ANTIQUE VICTORIAN CAST IRON ARCHITECTURAL GREEN MAN FACE FIREPLACE GRATE CHICAGO. This is one of the more scarcer hard to find fireplace grate face plates from a Victorian log holder. What makes this one " Very Desirable " is that it depicts the classic {Green Man Face}. The famous Green Man originated from as far back to 400 AD and still has folklore stories to this day....... {If you know your history}. The Green Man motif has many variations and was widely used during the Victorian era as architectural carvings on buildings, houses, and countless other items.

This was originally the face plate of a Victorian fireplace log holder that would be placed inside the hearth. Once the logs began to burn the glowing flicker of the fire would accentuate the eyes and open mouth.

This is a " Very Attractive " antique cast iron grate from the " True Victorian " era. ITEM CONDITION : This grate is in " Exceptional Condition " with absolutely no damage. There are no cracks, chips, pitted or flaking rust, upon close inspection I noticed that there isn't barely any surface rust, it is a very clean artifact. I had discovered this grate in the attic of an old Detroit home that we demolished bout 30 years ago.

It was in between stacks of old lumber laying along the attics eves. I'm sure this is why it has survived in such outstanding original condition. The back has the makers mark as being E. HARRIS CHICAGO , which was an industrial manufacturing company for cast iron & metal work established in 1876 at 23 - 25 Randolph Street.

The measurements are as follows. It is 21 1/2 inches in length, 9 1/2 inches high at the very ends, and varies in depths of the cast 1/4 to 1/2 inch thick due to the raised ornate design.

There are 2 small iron tabs on the back side that stick out 1 inch and have holes in the center, this was to mount it to the front of the log holder, but can be reused to mount as the customer may decide. When I obtained this piece it had very little surface rust, I mean very little.

All I did was lightly clean it with a very fine steel bristle brush and the semi stain finish has remained the same while I had it in storage. {Yes, This is an Original}. The Green Man is desired by many collectors of items dealing in mythological creatures, animals, and Gods. Over all this piece is in exceptionally clean solid condition and would make a great wall hanger.
