Description: Arched rectangular shape; ovolo-moulded edging; a shield with the arms of the Grocers' Company on a cartouche, surrounded by four sprays of olive leaves.
Notes: The blazon of the arms is: Argent, a chevron gules between nine cloves six in chief and three in base proper. The arms were granted in 1532. The style of the fireback owes something to the design of French firebacks of the mid-17th century.
Copies of this fireback are known.
Arms: Worshipful Company of Grocers
