US$1,039.23

About

18th century French Louis XIV fireback with two Pillars of Hercules and fleurs de lys (French Lillies). The Pillar of Hercules stands for strength and for the unknown. The fleur de lys is a symbol for purity and appeared on many coats of arms and flags throughout Europe. It is especially used by the house of Bourbon which provided kings for France and for Spain. The fireback is made of cast iron and has a natural brown patina. Upon request it can be made black / pewter.
