We are pleased to offer for your buying consideration a MAGNIFICENT ANTIQUE FRENCH MINIATURE HAND PAINTED ENAMEL DOLL SCREEN !
An absolute PERFECT ACCESSORY ITEM to showcase your favorite Poupee or small Bebe, we RARELY come across these wonderful miniature pieces, but whenever we do we are always ENCHANTED with them as they make a wonderful backdrop display for dolls!
The screen is circa late 1800's FRENCH VICTORIAN, made of entirely HAND PAINTED enameling on metal or tin. It measures a total of 17 1/4" tall to it's highest point in the middle (14 1/2 tall for just the screen), and 16 1/2" wide including all three panels. It depicts a beautiful outdoor WINTER SCENE of a calm snowy evening, depicting the serenity of a single CHURCH surrounded by SNOW COVERED trees on a lake; a PEACEFUL and ETHEREAL background! The painting is SUPERB with AMAZING DETAIL (the church even has stained glass windows!) and painstakingly executed tiny brushstrokes; we don't see a signature but this was obviously made with skilled workmanship by a very TALENTED ARTIST! The back of the screen is black enameled tin, and it folds in three places supported by four very ORNATE silver metal FILIGREED LEGS, two on each end and two in the middle! Except for overall minor wear to the enameling, the screen is in EXCELLENT CONDITION and will display BEAUTIFULLY in the most ADVANCED collections!
We have shown it being modeled for scale purposes as a backdrop for our 13" antique French Fashion doll who would like to keep it for her own-----doesn't YOUR favorite Poupee or small Bebe deserve this SPECTACULAR piece in her salon?
This RARE HAND PAINTED ANTIQUE FRENCH ENAMEL MINIATURE DOLL SCREEN is being offered for the first time on Ruby Lane for your buying consideration-------a MAGNIFICENT display piece for your antique dolls!
