Swedish Cast Iron Jamb Stove Plate

Swedish Cast Iron Jamb Stove Plate

Ref: M1850
Ormo Bruk (Ormos Mill) (Smalands)

An early example of a panel of a five-plate/jamb stove plate. This large, nicely cast piece depicts St. George atop his horse, slaying a fierce dragon. He is portrayed within a classical arch, with weaponry on the flanks. The piece would make a handsome fireback for a large fireplace. The words Ormo Bruk are found within a cartouche at the bottom.
