Exceptional 'Judgement of Paris' Fireback, 16th Century

About

Exceptional fireback in terms of age, beauty and condition. The fireback was made in the 16th century in the Eisenschmitt foundry (Südeifel, Germany) that closed in 1618. Moreover, the fireback is rare in absolute terms. The fireback has been described in K. von den Driesch.''Handbuch der Ofen-, Kamin-, und Takenplatten in Rheinland", page 33. The fireback has been reinforced more recently at the back with some additional cast iron, also to fill some original casting holes. Also the back has been mechanically flattened to allow if to be wall-mounted.
