Fire screens remind us that the fireplace often holds a coveted position of center stage in many living rooms and family rooms today. It is deserving of this spot because fires radiate warmth, comfort and appealing ambiance even on the darkest, coldest, dismal of winter days. A fireplace adds character to the home.
The design of the fireplace should compliment the architectural style of the house, as well as one’s own personal style. No wonder home owners carefully hand select items to adorn the fireplace mantle. This is where you find treasured art work or family photographs. And Expressions of Time agrees that the fireplace should indeed be personalized to suit the needs of the people deriving pleasure from it. But the fireplace screen is often forgotten or overlooked!
Fire place screens stand in front of the fireplace to purposely keep ash and sparks safely where they belong. In the warmer months, they offer a decorative way to hide the blackened firebox and gaping empty hole. Talk of fireplace decor!
The fire place screen has a rich and interesting history. In the 18th century they were referred to as horse screens or Cheval screens. Cheval being the French word for horse. Named because of the construction between two poles. There were two poles on each side, the screen stretched between them. The connection? Horses have four pole like legs, with a long body stretched in between!
Later, in the Victorian period, anything elaborate was the norm. Decorative fireplace screens were often constructed in oval shapes with a variety of materials. Hand made embroidered panels or painted panels were not unusual for this time period. Sometimes, screens were crafted from paper machete, wood, leather and wicker materials. Wealthier homesteads paid to have custom stained glass panels designed.
Today, Expressions of Time offers the timeless fireplace tool set befitting your fireplace mantel in the highest quality wrought iron and forged metal. The variety of designs are meant to compliment and accent any decor.
