  1. Peg, that is really lovely , I have never seen one like this before and it certainly is a very special treasure .Thanks also for the reminder for OPAM:-)

  2. What a great treasure. I haven't seen one with chariots on it before. We have Mick's grandmother's with hunting dogs.
    Enjoy your book from Jenny. It will be lovely eye candy.

  3. Wonderful find! And that book looks amazing! Enjoy!

  4. I too had one of those fire screen Peg and my DS decided he needed some extra money one time and took it to the scrap metal place and got cash for it. Was not impressed and still am not impressed about it. They are wonderful things and your one is lovely. That is a treasure. :) hugs Vicki

  5. Beautiful fire screen there Peg.... amazingly good condition....and great book to win.... looking forward to seeing your projects from it!

  8. What a beautiful fire screen - that's a true treasure, they surely don't make them like that anymore.
    Congrats on your win - looks like a great book!

  9. Wow, I've never seen one like that before! My Gran has a similar one, but it's got 3 sides to it. the front and the two ends to curl aroudn the fire. Yours is beautiful though! Does it get hot sitting in front of the fire?

  10. The craftsmanship in that screen is lovely and congrats on winning such a lovely book, I expect to see many more projects on your blog in future
