Miniature fireplaces such as this one are often wrongly referred to as travelling salesman's samples, no fireplace of full size was ever available like this. I believe this one in particular has religious and masonic significance, and would be used as fireside decoration, much in the same way as Victorian fairings.
A few of the symbols this portrays are, a cross, ladder, sword, fish, cross keys, chalice, candlesticks, compasses, hammers, chisel, set square, trowel etc., and what appears to be a some sort of lifting device.
It has been cast in one piece and other than what possibly was once a chimney crane is missing ( see top right of opening), it is complete and in good order.
