Date as far back as the middle ages, its primary function was to act as a heat shield and to protect the rooms furnishing from open flames and flying embers emitted by the fire and to reduce the discomfort to the occupants of excessive heat from a log fire. In the 17th and 18th Century, homes were heated by burning logs in a fireplace, it was very hot in the area within a few feet of the fire, and very cold in the rest of the room, water would freeze if kept more than 10 feet from the heat source. 18th-century fire screens were made of wood with the decoration of the central panel using fabric or fine needlework or tapestry, and paintings, these were often made by the women of the house.
Initially, metal wasn't used because it became so hot. But by the mid-19th century, iron stoves were used to warm the room, so many fire screens became more decorative than useful. They were used in front of smaller fires or empty fireplaces. Some late 19th Century screens were made of colored stained lead glass with Brass or Iron frames used to hold the glass.
The screens were impressive when the fire was lit and the flames shined through and lighting up the rainbows of colors within the stained glass. The main types of screens used are.Small, flat, tray-like piece attached to a pedestal pole on a tripod base, that resembles a tilt-top table, placed next to a chair. The screen could be moved up and down the pole to shield a person from the intense heat. First used in the 17th Century, the pole screens were decorated with fine embroidery, painted banners, lacquer, or paint. These are wide screens that stand on two legs, usually with a handle at the top, Cheval Screens were common in elegant Victorian interiors and were well suited to the eclectic 1880s when Eastlake Styled Furnishings and Oriental Brass Screens were first produced. Brass was first discovered around 1400 B.
