Visual Description :
This hammered copper with brass mount and stand fire screen has an abstracted Art Nouveau style floral design on its front panel.
The single sheet of copper has been worked into sinuous designs evoking abstract botanical forms, their elongated proportions approaching those of Art Nouveau. Its wrought support is worked into curvilinear scrolls above the screen into a decorative crest. Here is another work intended to beautify the hearth, that would communicate fine craftsmanship in the home and a celebration of “honest materials.”
