Register Grates & Cast Iron Grates

Cast iron hob grates were first produced in the 18th century cast iron and by the end of the century register grates were produced, which incorporated register plates within the grate. (A register plate is the flap which can close the flue when not in use, and which had been in use as plate in the flue since the early 17th century ) . In the mid 19th century round or horseshoe register grates were common, whilst the late 19th century is characterised by tiled splays.
