Description: Arched rectangular shape; cavetto moulded edging; top centre within arch, initials above date.
Notes: Plain elegant fireback from a late series, probably cast in the south east of England. The crack emanating from the top right corner of the fireback seems to be a weakness on all the recorded examples, and may have caused by thinness of the base board at that point.
Inscription: TW / 1852
Current location: Horsham Museum, Causeway, Horsham, West Sussex, England.

Description: Rectangular; twisted rope edging (top and sides only); rope diagonally length across each top corner.
