Elizabethan Firebrick

English, late 16th c.

Clay. Wonderfully graphic brick with deeply moilded diaper decoration. The central row with heraldic lion in a wreath, and upper and lower rows with roundels. Was part of a curved structure on the edge of the hearth -- a pilaster perhaps? Chip on back corner re-attached, otherwise excellent condition.

5-3/4" w (front) 5-1/4" w (back); 4-1/4" h; 2-1/2" d.
