All of my antiques are hand selected from European container shipments. I do not purchase in bulk, but prefer to individually purchase the items, with each piece selected for its unique characteristics and quality.
Note: I attend dozens of European container sales each month, and this is by far the best fire screen that Ive seen in many years.this quality and style screen just doesnt make it to the market very often!!!
49 ½H (VERY TALL) x 16 x 30;
Footprint, 16 x 27.
The fire screen is in good condition, with normal signs of age and use, scratches, dings, and other imperfections to be expected for an antique over 100 years old. It is sturdy and strong, structurally sound.
Below is additional information about the stand ---
The tapestry is clean and in very good condition, without any stains or tears on the front and showing slight aging on the backside lining. I do not know if this is the original tapestry or a replacement made over the years..it appears to have been in place for quite some time. T is narrow rope braid trim around the edges that frames the design and covers the small tacks that hold the tapestry to the oak frame.
When taking photos, I noted the back side on the right foot has been repairedit seems to be an old repair and quite sturdy. T are also a few small moulding pieces missing on the upper back side and a small V shape piece inside the top left corner crown molding.
I always provide multiple photos and written information and . (I do have additional photos on this item, and will send them to your email address if requested).
