Rare American Federal Period Brass Fire Place Set

United States Ca. 1820

Yes this set is rare as hen’s teeth, specifically because of the extraordinary screen which will be the focal point of your fireplace. This is only the second period screen I have personally seen in over 35 years that has acorn finials. Though scarce, the more common type of finial on American screens are the slightly later ball finials. Most period American screens do not have finials. This set must have been made for an unusually well furnished home on a grand scale for the 1810-25 era as the screen is 60″ long. The andirons are 20″ tall and 20.5″ deep. The screen is also 20″ tall. The form of the legs point to a New York origin.
