DESCRIPTION :
Dated from the late 18th century, important cast iron fireback representing an Allegory of Commerce. Indeed, the central decoration presents an Antique port, where we can see the unloading of a sailing boat and traders and men carrying the goods. The scene is under the auspices of the god Mercury, protector of merchants, thieves and travelers, whose statue stands in the center. He's shown here, with his attributes: his caduceus in his left hand and his winged helmet.
