Description: Rectangular; cyma recta moulded edging; centre top, date formed of individual stamps.
Notes: The moulding used for the edging, which was probably derived from redundant furniture, is very similar to that used on several firebacks of a similar style in the late 17th century, although the lettering style is different. Although its small height suggests that this may only be the top half of a fireback, the existence of a plate of similar dimensions in Brighton Museum may indicate that the proportions were deliberate.
Current location: Dorset County Museum, Dorchester, Dorset, England.
