Antique Wooden Fireplace Screens

In comparison to the history of the fireplace itself, open fireplace screens have not been so long in existence. Invented in the 18th century, open fireplace screens soon evolved into an indispensable accessory. Before this particular time, homes would be loaded with smoke and ash making the open fireplace more of a pain than any form of decorative center point. Possibly the best advantage fireplace screens offer is actually that it separates the hearth from the majority of the home making sure that the smoke and also the ashes don't dance about the air as well as lie on the flooring surfaces. Fireplace screens also shield men and women from the full intensity of the heating and make those romantic fireside chats possible.

A separate category of display screen is the "spark guard." Spark guards are actually screens which not just protect sparks from coming straight out from your fire into your room but also protect you from sparks that may take up-and-out in your room. Usually, they seem similar to a three-panel display screen with 2 important differences: First, a further best section of screening goes from the roof of the 3 sections up to the fireplace wall. Frequently this leading segment of screening is shaped just like the curved section of an old fashioned roll-front desk. Second, none of the panels is hinged. The entire spark guard is rigid. to be able to tend a fire, handles on the spark guard allow the strict device to be picked up and moved away from the fire.
