Iron fire-dog. Two animal-headed terminals on long iron shafts join to a long horizontal cross-bar, raised from the ground on four 'feet'. The feet, upright shafts and cross-bar are all rectangular in cross-section, with the cross-bar twice the thickness of the feet and uprights, although of the same width. The animal-headed terminals have elongated knobbed horns, and may represent bulls.
