This FIRE SCREEN FRAME is one part of this Southern Antique collector's possessions , who as the old homes were destroyed back in the 1930's- 1950'd, this collector carefully salvaged the old mantles and stored in for more than half of a century. The Newspaper article said."Maybe the collector didn’t even remember where it was stored or why he had saved it all those years. Maybe just because he liked it , with no use in mind. But the fact remains that, in depths of the Great Depression when the decorative features of razed residences might be had, at least, for carting them away at most, for a song. This collector did a lot of singing! His acquisitions, in any event are incorporated today in some of the old south’s pretentious homes. He owned many old homes here and as they were torn down --he managed to salvage much of the fencing , marble mantles, brass door knobs..etc.. Mantel frames of this type were popular in the late 1800's and beginning of 20 th century to grace the mansions built more than a Century ago. This one is a handsome iron fire screen frame and would look great with a vintage mantle! Visit my Ebay Shop for more antiques! Material: Iron
