I love unique items!
When I saw this and realized what it was I just had to have it! I had never seen one like this before …
Some of you may recognize this for what it is but for those of you who don’t, it is a fireplace screen.
How does it work? Well, it unfolds into the most beautiful fanned out screen!
I have only dusted it so far with a damp cloth as I quite like the patina of it. I don’t know how old it is exactly but I do know that it has beautiful detail.
I also like how it folds up to be something of an ornament when it isn’t in use. When people see it they don’t realise that it is a fireplace screen.
I’m not sure if I will polish it up or not …
Anyways… I hope everyone enjoyed the weekend. I had a surprisingly productive weekend painting and upholstering! Now I just need to buckle down and take photos to share. I still have photos to edit of the new dining room area as well which I promise (now I’m for sure accountable having
said written it out loud) I will share this week!
