Blacksmiths (c. 1880) by Benjamin Creswick. Iron relief, 10 x 19 inches. Private Collection. Note the three boys peeking through the doorway at left. This relief seems to be the one that appears as the central panel of a bronze mantelpiece by Arthur Heygot Mackmurd.

This is one version of a motif which Creswick used as part of the collaborative work with A.H Mackmurdo of the Century Guild it was included in the Bronze Mantelpiece 1880 there is a plaster version in the Walkley Virtual Museum site and is recorded in the Mapping Sculpture website
