Pair of Handheld English Fire Screens

with Rosewood Handles, circa 1840

each measures 14½” x 9½” • price: $800 for pair

An interesting form, these fire screens are made with Berlin pattern pictorial scenes worked onto sturdy metal scrims – a young girl playing with her dog inside an excellent border of oak leaves and acorns and a chicken pecking at feed while a rooster looks on. The fans are nicely shaped and edged with metal. The handles are original and made of very finely turned rosewood, with some gold-leaf highlights.
