18th Century French Fireback "La Raison"

This most unusual French fireback from the 1700’s has a thick, shaped surround with acanthus leaf motifs.  It depicts two mischievous cherubs at play with a lion.  Above this scene is La Raison, or The Reason.  This fireback has a wonderful old patina from years of being used in a mantel. The bottom area has the more worn part due to being closest to the fire.  That being said, the figures are still visible just beautifully worn.

CONDITION: Very good antique condition.  Rusting in areas, minor losses to iron surface and motifs
