The firescreen is arranged on a bar with four feet adorned with shells. The firescreen's bronze decoration is characteristic of the Napoleon III style opulence. There are various finely chiselled motifs :egg-and-dart friezes, flower branches, lion heads and multiple acanthus leaves and rococo-inspired curves.
