They say if you get too close to the fire – you’ll get burned!
Not the case if you are armed with us. We are a pair of beautiful face shields from the 1870s. A roaring open fire is the epitome of cosy, sophisticated, winter evening warming but the last thing a lady needs is for flushed cheeks from the flames. We provide the most elegant solution to keep your delicate skin unblemished.
I have exquisite detailed beadwork on a bed of fine red velvet, unravaged by time. I was clearly treated with love. There is decorative ropework and metal handles.
I am fragile… with my combination of metal, with risk of tarnish, fabric with risk of moth damage, degrading, mould etc I need to be stored in the perfect conditions to prevent damage.
Consider me for adoption -you won’t really get to take me home, but you’ll get 2 free tickets to come visit me plus kids 12 and under are always free – so I’m a day out and an historical object rolled in one!
