An early 19th century brass and wrought iron fender with inlaid brass decoration in the manner of George Bullock. The front panel is decorated with a brass inlaid and engraved pattern of anthemion and foliated scrolls and stamped Summers along the bottom edge of the front rail. Circa 1820.
This elegant fender has cleverly been designed to stand without needing extra support by giving a slight lean to the central panel. Summers most likely refers to the firm of metal workers W.S Summers listed at no.105 New Bond Street, close to George Bullock’s premises at No 4 Tenterden Street. The similarity of the brass inlaid pattern to some of those found on George Bullock’s work suggests that Summers was familiar with Bullock’s designs and adapted them for their own use. A register grate with a similarly inlaid brass pattern can be found in the Great Drawing Room at Syon House.
