On offer for sale is a beautiful quality Victorian, circa 1870 pole screen. Approximate dimensions 55 1/2 inches total height from the floor to the top of the finial. The tapestry frame is approx 18 inches by 17 inches. It's made from solid rosewood, with a carved claw feet. The screen is adjustable along the length of the pole, so it can easily be angled to suit your needs. The tapestry itself is in very good original condition, but the original silk backing material it was mounted on has deteriorated considerably, please see close up images. Personally I like this just the way it is, but the new owner may want to have it remounted on a fresh backing. The back of the panel was also silk covered, but that has long since gone. It's still stable and usable just the way it is, but in time the silk backing would need to be replaced. Wouldn't need to use silk again, any suitable fabric would do the job. This is a terrific old pole screen, made from a very high quality piece of rosewood. Back in the day screens like this were often used to shield ladies faces from direct sunlight, heat from a fireplace or a draught. The beauty of this piece is that it can easily be disassembled and packaged for delivery. The top finial pulls off allowing the screen to be removed, and then the base of the pole unscrews from the base by means of a threaded dowel, and the pole then unscrews again further along it's length with another threaded dowel joint. It couldn't be easier, and assembles again in just minutes. There is a tiny piece of wood which was worn off from the bottom center area of the tapestry frame, but hardly worth mentioning as you would likely never know. If you like fine elegant antiques, then you will not be disappointed in this quality pole screen with tapestry panel, but please remember this is a vintage piece and will show normal signs of age.
