Many of the best antique fireplace screens available today can be found
in Europe -- primarily France and England. The striking examples featured here date from the mid 19th century to the early 20th century.   Pic- tured  above  is  an attractive mid 19th century English brass firescreen from Thornhill Galleries in London. It incorporates a series of scrolls, leaves and flowers in its design.
