Fire Screen, ca. 1920–25
Russian-born and -trained craftsman Samuel Yellin immigrated to Philadelphia and opened his own shop in 1909. The fire screen, made for his house in Philadelphia, and the andirons, reflect his taste for Medieval and Renaissance wrought-iron designs both for the home and commercial clients. The andirons graced the Director’s Conference Room of the Westinghouse Air Brake Building in Pittsburgh.
