An antique pair of impressive and opulent fire grates reclaimed from the former Hampstead mansion of Sir Joseph Beecham. These exceptional fire baskets are made from polished and engraved steel, with applied beading and piercing. The antique fire grates feature railed serpentine baskets, out-swept spandrels and majestic urn finials flanking a paterae pierced and engraved fret. The chamfered standards sit on baluster feet.

The baskets date from the lavish refurbishment of the mansion by Sir Beecham in 1903. No expense was spared and the family crest was featured in all the main rooms of the property. They are copies of an existing Georgian fire basket in the style of Robert Adam, which is now in the British Galleries of the Victoria & Albert Museum in London (object no. M.492-1911).

Each basket also has a polished fire back emblazoned with the Beecham coat of arms, including the family motto "Nil Sine Labore".
