Pillars Fireback

Les colonnes représentent la massue d'Hercule et symbolisent la force. Depuis l'antiquité, les "Colonnes d'Hercule" ont aussi été le nom donné aux montagnes situées de chaque côté du Détroit de Gibraltar. Ils symbolisent donc la transition entre le monde connu et le monde inconnu (Nec Plus Ultra, "Plus rien au-delà") et également ensuite simplement pour son opposé : prendre des risques et se confronter à l'inconnu (Plus Ultra "au-delà"). Ils représentent aussi les territoires d'outre-mer sur le blason royal de l'Espagne.

Expert advice

Classification: ***: Very good condition, limited wear given the age and use. **: Clear signs of wear and possible structural problems including small instabilities. Still well suited for use in an open fireplace. *: Structural instability that hinders function other than decorative. For example, open fireplace tongs with a loose mechanism so that the ends can overlap. A fireback in this classification can still be used in a gas fireplace or as a backsplash. Should you want additional information about the quality or the classification of a specific fireplace accessory, do not hesitate to ask.
