This is a very traditional colonial design fireplace spark guard. In colonial times, spark protection was even more important than it is today where the fireplace was used for both cooking and heating. This practical design offers maximum against sparks exiting the top or sides. It also offers maximum stability as it's unlikely to topple over if a toddler falls against it.
Brass handles make this screen easy to move to load wood or tend the fire. Affordably priced.
