Maison Bouhon Frères was an important French producer of fine fireplace tools in the nineteenth and twentieth century. Once known as Maison Clavier, Maison Bouhon Frères was already a well-established and reputable firm by 1900, known for their fine bronze and wrought iron fire accessories. Their premise was located at 12 rue Debelleyme, in the Marais in Paris.

A more elaborate version of this screen was made by Bouhon for François Linke.
