HM PRISON VISITORS SCREEN early 20th Century ORIGINAL GRILL genuine VINTAGE rare

GENUINE H.M. PRISON SCREEN
This is a genuine early 20th Century used HM Prison visitors Grill/screen - The Prisoner sat on one side of a desk and the visitor on the other and this mesh screen on a wooden frame kept them from any physical contact.
It is a stand alone transportable piece of used Prison Equipment a Vintage piece that is no longer in service as I think the inmates nowadays need something a bit more substantial.... but I'm not naming names.
The sign reads....,
PHYSICAL CONTACT BETWEEN PRISONERS &VISITORS IS PROHIBITED BY ORDER H.M. PRISON SERVICE
This is a great piece of installation art or could be used as a Fire Screen and it's certainly a talking point and no one else has one..... well not one they could take home with them legally
This is in excellent vintage used condition impressive the screen mesh has all the patina of age and use but is solid without holes or tears.
SIZE 65cm x 56cm High
I do not know which Prison this came from but it was certainly one of Her Majesty's as the card at the top of the screen shows Heres a closer view

Stunning patina, this piece has obviously been highly prized and was never thrown out or abandoned - its a great keepsake

The photographs are of the actual screen which is here in Bromley, Kent.
