Gorgeous antique piece of cast iron art from Bradley & Hubbard Company. Made in U.S.A. In the 1800's B&H made many wonderful items using a variety of metals, including cast iron and brass. They were known for lamps and lighting. This item was used in the parlor to cover the hole in the wall where the parlor stove pipe went to connect with the chimney. Parlor stoves were taken out of the room when weather warmed up. Beautiful portrait in high relief of a Victorian lady in festive attire. She has Holly leaves and berries in her hair indicating Christmas. Plaque is in good condition, though it does show wear in some spots. See photos. Chain to hang as art on back. Happy bidding!
