Antique Silk Face Screens Victorian Hand-Painted

An antique pair of silk face screens with tassels and braided trim. Each face screen has a different floral scene. One depicts an English Rose with delicate blue flowers. The other depicts a cutting of berries. The trim and cording in shades of golds and tans are accented with deep green and black. The back of each screen is covered in a solid deep green silk. The handles are black porcelain and brass with decorative finials.

An exceptional decorating detail for your fireplace; the designs have been hand-painted on the cream silk.

Acquired in England; Circa 1890

Measurements: When attached full height is 19 inches long. Each screen measures 7 7/8 inches by 9 inches without the trim which is 2 inches.

Condition report; Minor spots on cream fronts. The trim and tassels are in very good condition. The handles are in good condition with a few minor bends; however these are mostly covered by the face screens. The screens attached to the handles with small brass hooks. Only three of these remain; however, they are a little difficult to hook and unhook. I am sure an experienced seamstress could devise a better way to attached the screens to the handles (several small stitches through the back of the cording to the openings on the handles would hold them well).
