When my husband and I came across this neat antique floor grate, we just had to have it! My husband (being an engineer) loved the gear theme and I'm a lover of all things vintage / art deco so the aesthetic really appealed to me too. It was a little small for the grate we were replacing, but we made it fit. It arrived quicker than expected and was surprisingly well-packaged. The product looks just as pictured, but what we didn't know is that you turn the central gear itself to adjust the louvers! So cool! We love the grates so much we're considering ordering more for other rooms of the house. Highly recommend Van Dyke's and this grate!
