Rare Antique Strait & Richards Terra Cotta Driftwood Gas Fireplace Fire Log 22"
Rare antique Strait & Richards terra cotta fireplace sculpture. Depicting a stack of driftwood logs this fireplace ceramic sculpture was connected to gas pipes in behind a fireplace. This was an invention to disguise the new idea of gas heating which was introduced at the beginning of the 20th century. It replicated the look of the fireplace as it was traditionally viewed whilst being innovative and new in a wealthy household. Very heavy and very ornate this would suit any arts and crafts fireplace.
