Not many of these old grates have paint worth saving but this one is the exception. The shabby brass color paint has a neat rustic look and the interior is a faded red color. The face plate measures 14" x 11 1/8". The air duct opening is. 11 3/4 x 8 1/2.Marked PATENTED JUNE 26 1894. The front grate is the raised style giving it more depth than a flat face grate. The grate has all the old layers of paint. I washed it with water to remove dust and dirt so it is ready to use. The screws are loose and the louvers move easily.
I make sure the screws are loose and removable if you want to open it. There are no cracks in the castings.I use plenty of pictures from all sides so look closely at ALL the pictures. Please REMEMBER, Tracking numbers don't update daily! Doing that is against U.
