HM Ofenschirmgesam

Magnificent, French Firescreen

2nd Half of the 19th Century

Very rare, stun­ning Fire­screen, leaf gild­ed and carved, rich­ly dec­o­rat­ed with rib­bons, blos­soms, and leaves. Two three-dimen­sion­al­ly elab­o­rat­ed angels car­ry the screen, cen­tered by a fire ampho­ra.
With the orig­i­nal tapes­try, made for this screen, the back cov­ered with silk fab­ric. Crowned is the screen by a pair of doves as the sym­bol of love.
The fire­screen most like­ly is based on a design of Delafos­se from mid of the 18th Century.

An absolute rar­i­ty on the inter­na­tion­al market.
