Fireboard made from five boards stenciled with upper and lower borders and standing birds in a row inbetween. Painted in black and grey with touches of red in the upper border. The upper border has swags with fruit. For upper border and birds, see the same in a house on Clongh Hill, London, N.H. (My notebook) Lower border is similar to the Manse, Petersborough, N.H. (Waring) Background boards are unpainted.
