Arts & Crafts Copper and Wrought Iron Fire Screen*
Early 1900’s copper and wrought iron fire screen, probably by Herbert Dyer or perhaps the Eustace brothers, but certainly from the Cornish school.
The ornate frame with its scrolls and swirls is in wrought iron and the oval central panel is copper. Depicting a small sailing boat on a windy day with the sea looking distinctly choppy. The boat and the waves are cleverly highlighted against the dark patinated copper background.
Completing the design are four small copper roses attached to the frame, just outside the panel.
The condition is good with just a few signs of age but nothing at all drastic.
Just under 84 cm high and 50 cm wide. The feet are around 46 cm apart and have a depth of 30 cm.
