Found these old gas stove grates at Canton, Texas trade days.  They look very decorative hung on a wall with a little something stuffed in the tops.  In this case, they are on the side of an old barn wood cabinet. I did have to drill a hole in the back to be able to hang them.  You have to be careful in drilling as they are very fragile.
