Berrington Hall, Herefordshire (Accredited Museum)
This late 18th Century steel grate was purchased by Lord Cawley around 1908 to replace the original which was missing. The grate is unusual as its front is decorated with Wedgewood blue jasper cameos. It would be removed when the fire was lit to prevent the cameos cracking.
Firegrate with Wedgwood medallions acquired by Lord Cawley's Grandfather for Berrington.
Amongst the chattels collected by 1st Lord Cawley for Berrington Hall. Purchased by the National Trust from Lord Cawley in March 1996.
