A fine antique Fire Screen made by Liberty of London



Stock No.9027

A very handsome wrought iron antique fire screen with stylised pierced decoration interspersed with mesh panels and backed in red velvet. The pierced decoration depicts the Tudor Rose, a Lion Rampant, the Florentinian Fleur de Lys, and the Chained Swan which was the symbol of the De Bohun family and was adopted by the House of Lancaster when Henry, later Henry IV, married Mary de Bohun in 1380. Their son Henry V had it figured prominently on his standard which he carried to victory at the Battle of Agincourt.
The large central panel depicts a Firebird or Phoenix over a Coronet. Well engineered with spiral turned frames within the main structure on scrolled bracket trestles.
Provenance: Identical designs are on the doors of a large metal cabinet in Liberty's store in Regent Street, London, circa 1900, ( photo before restoration and polishing ).
