Our Stock # 10.1478
This is an antique fire screen dating to the early 19th Century.
Beautifully crafted in giltwood and gesso the screen frame is raised on elaborate scrolled feet with different masks looking out to either end; presumably the artist created them in the form of the original client's faces, who may well have the initials 'R.B.' as depicted in the heraldic shield surmounting the crest rail.
The glazed aperture is ready to accommodate a tapestry panel or similar and is mounted within sinuous scrolls and foliate detail.
Large and impressive this screen has excellent proportion and if the highest quality.
Rare to find and in remarkably good antique condition, delivered ready for the home.
