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.
Firescreen H: 127 cm, W: 75 cm, D: 47 cm
