A Louis XV Style Three-Fold Giltwood Screen Needlepoint & Beveled Glass Antique

0.00
sold out

A fine quality antique French screen coming directly from a wealthy Short Hills, NJ estate where it was purchased in the 1950s by a NYC decorator, who furnished the estate with period French antiques.  I would say this is a late 19th or early 20th century example.  Hinges fold in two directions.

Wood and gessoed frame with three shaped and beveled glass panels in top portion.  Lower section with three needlepoint panels depicting couples and ladies.  Back side paneled in silk.

Condition:  Some small pieces of gessoed decoration missing around extremities.  Needlepoint has experienced fading, but in my opinion it has a nice neutral patina.  Hinges work well.  Heavy and well made.  Silk on back has tears, but can easily be replaced.

Measurements:

54" H x 65" Total width x 21 1/2" W each section
