Very fine & rare antique Victorian era, possibly Jennens & Bettridge, papier mache 18" x 14" large fire screen or firescreen panel with beautiful shaped edges and gorgeous, colorful hand painted flowers & exotic bird! Isn't this one simply fabulous! Nice large size, it would originally have been the movable screen portion of a floor-standing fire screen. Now just the panel and an exceptional wall hanging decorative piece. A work of art, a painting in oil with a host of colorful flowers & foliage and a marvelous peacock or exotic bird figure. I keep thinking of having it set into a shadow box frame though it's simply superb hung as is for a beautiful Chinoserie style decorative wall art accent. Don't miss it!
Very good to excellent condition. Possibly a tiny nip or two to the edge but nothing really that I can see. Some very light surface scratches to the front painting and, of course, there is the spot on the back where the mounting would have been to be used with the pole stand. See pictures for exact measurements.
