Unidentified Royal Navy logo.
« on: 24 January 2017 12:04:09 AM »
Hi everyone, can anyone identify the attachment. I picked up this (very heavy!) cast iron item at a recent garage sale. A thorough search of the internet has brought up no clues. As you can see it contains a crown with a reversed anchor below with an amphisbaena or two headed snake winding around it. There are no other markings regarding manufacture or date anywhere on the item. Can any of you provide me with any info at all to help me identify and find out the history of this item?

***An update I finally found on the internet it is a fireback, an item used to form the back of a fireplace often adorned with designs that reflects the heat back into the room and protects the wall or chimney flue behind the fire. Thanks to all those that viewed my item.
