Framed Cast Iron Fireplace insert
French circular cast iron picture in high relief of two young women wearing long, diaphanous gowns, dancing together rather dreamily.
Tall and slender, the pair make for an elegant composition, looking extremely graceful and light on their feet.
Dating from circa the late 1800’s and thought to have probably once been an insert for a fireplace, the iron plaque looks to have been regularly blackened over a long period, as might be expected, and has been subsequently mounted in a gold coloured frame, setting it off perfectly.
The overall diameter is 28.5 cm with the visible plaque measuring 22.5 cm across.
Strung at the back for wall hanging.
