18th Century French Fireback "La Raison"
This most unusual French fireback from the 1700’s has a thick, shaped surround with acanthus leaf motifs. It depicts two mischievous cherubs at play with a lion. Above this scene is La Raison, or The Reason. This fireback has a wonderful old patina from years of being used in a mantel. The bottom area has the more worn part due to being closest to the fire. That being said, the figures are still visible just beautifully worn.
CONDITION: Very good antique condition. Rusting in areas, minor losses to iron surface and motifs
