Miniature fireplaces such as this are often wrongly referred to as salesman's samples, my opinion is that they are simply fireside decoration for the home, maybe having some significance in much the same way as some Victorian fairings. Although the centre section of this somewhat resembles a real hob grate fireplace of the late Georgian period, the surround shows oak leaves and acorns, surmounted by a coat of arms (missing crest), itself supported by two figures. Certainly nothing any manufacturer of the real thing would produce, or consider good enough for a sample. The grate bars are of polished brass (rarely seen in the full size version). It stands on a later replacement wooden plinth for display.
