Hi Craig
wow!   that piece you showed is just utterly fabulous  :mrgreen:  - I am in the South West of the UK.  You are absolutely more than welcome to use the picture.  I am happy to take one of the base as well if you wish.  The grill is definitely a replacement (mine :) ) but all the grills I have on my bowls, with the exception of one which is very ornate, are simple wire cross brass.  Do you think it would have been a more ornate one originally?

Most of the wire frogs were not too fancy.....

Thanks for permission....

I should have taken a better shot of this one and against black as this photo makes the turquoise look washed out a bit, but anyway, same decor, different shape :)
