Offered is this beautiful old Swedish Gustavian fire screen. It is very unusual in its design, with it's beautifully carve wood frame. It is painted a cream color with gilt embellishments.
It is in good condition for its age. The wooden frame is very sturdy, but there is some paint loss at the bottom of the legs. The needlepoint is in beautiful condition. The back is covered in a foil board to reflect the heat and there is some loss to the foil, as can be seen in photo #9
I forgot to measure it, so I estimate the size to be about 44" high x 26" wide. I will post the exact measurements tomorrow (Feb 16)
I purchased this in Sweden some years ago and had it shipped over. It has been at my house since that time, but I have now decided to sell it.
