Firebacks were an essential part of European homes for centuries.
These heavycast iron panels providedsafety, efficiency, and décor to the ubiquitous hearths of houses and gathering places. Placed against the back wall of the firebox, their function was two-fold: protect the posterior walls from sparks and flames, and retain and reflect back the relatively meager heat generated by wood fires. Created from specially carved wooden molds pressed into fine wet sand for casting, the design component evolved over time to reflect the changing interest and tastes of the public. Early English and French firebacks displayed the royal coats of arms and other aristocratic or ecclesiastic heraldry.
