Description: Arched rectangular; gadrooned edging (top and sides); three bobbins as stamps - one centre top, and a different one on each side to left and right of arch base - initials and date split either side of top bobbin.
Notes: The distinctive edging and use of bobbins is seen on other firebacks; similar initials and date suggest a common source; the initials may relate to John Weston, of Warnham, Sussex (d. 1642). A rectangular fireback of the same date and also with three identical spindles is at Ewhurst Place, Ifield.
Copies of this fireback are known.
Inscription: I W / 16 32
Current location: in private hands, Warnham, West Sussex, England.
