Product Details

The careful art of preserving America's early history in the form of metalwork is a passion of the reknown Winterthur Museum in Deleware. Their impressive collection of American-made and imported metalwork is comprised of more than 21,000 objects! One very important group within this collection is that of wrought iron hardware as well as ornamental and useful iron implements, such as the fireback. Firebacks are shipped with a water base black paint to prevent rust build up during transit. To give a brighter finish to the fireback and to protect the casting from rust after use with a fire, an application of water base graphite stove polish is recommended. Applied with a toothbrush or rag, this paste, when dry, can be polished with a wire brush or rag giving the fireback an attractive silverfish sheen.

Established by Thomas Maybury in 1745 for the purpose of manufacturing iron, Hereford Furnace was instrumental in producing the first cast-iron cooking stove in North America. Enter the Pennsylvania Firebacks Hereford Stove Plate Cast Iron Fireback. Pennsylvania Firebacks' master artisans created this reproduction stove plate on which is displayed the Hereford name and date that Thomas Maybury's son took over the business, 1757. This fireback contains finely-detailed elements of the original stove plate's textures and sculptural design. This fireback would be an ideal addition to any hearth in the New England region where so much of America's colonial history can still be seen today.

Hereford Fireback

This product exceeded even my high expectations! It is beautifully made and was shipped expeditiously.I highly recommend it.

Fireback and Feet

23 x 23 - big and heavy - it was amazingly easy to erect at the back of our large fireplace - the feet are great -- I was worried about curing but starting with a few small fires seems to have worked - no issues after five days of large holiday fires - this fireback is a great addition to our wood burning fires.
