A fine and grand Georgian style brass and cast iron antique fire basket. The arched backplate sits behind a three barred grate mounted with five tulip vase finials above a pierced and engraved serpentine apron depicting mythical dragons amid scrolling foliage. The grate is supported on a pair of four columned standards topped with taller tulip vase finials. English, circa 1870.
