CHARMING Antique Miniature Alphabet Sampler Screen for Doll Display!
We are pleased to offer for your buying consideration a FABULOUS ANTIQUE MINIATURE ALPHABET SAMPLER SCREEN FOR DOLL DISPLAY!
Can you IMAGINE this unique miniature being showcased in a DRAWING ROOM vignette with a group of your FAVORITE FASHION dolls?
The PERFECT ACCESSORY item to display with your antique Poupee or Bebe, this HARD TO FIND miniature antique sampler has CHARMING DETAIL and would be sure to please both connoisseurs of vintage and antique SAMPLERS as well as collectors of antique dolls and their accessory items------a RARE TREASURE!
Most likely originally used as a Victorian Lady's FACE SCREEN to help shield her face from the intense heat of a fireplace, this wonderful miniature screen is made of either walnut or mahogany wood, measuring 16 3/4" tall including it's decorative FINIAL TOP with a bottom base measuring 4 7/8" in diameter! The screen features a framed ALPHABET SAMPLER measuring 5 3/4" BY 4 3/4", with the tiny sampler itself measuring a DIMINUTIVE 5" tall by 3 3/4" wide! The sampler is completely HAND EMBROIDERED, showcasing the entire alphabet in fancy block blue letters, a lovely garland of PINK FLOWERS across the bottom, and a decorative black SCALLOPED BORDER enhancing the handiwork!
The back of the sampler has it's original BLACK LINING, and the underneath of the screen's base has four green felt fabric circles to prevent the wood from scratching a table top! The screen slides up and down the post, but will stay poised at the top with a little sticky wax such as we have shown here! It is in overall EXCELLENT SHAPE, with very minor age wear to the wood and the sampler colors still crisp, a welcome addition to even the most SEASONED COLLECTIONS!
For scale purposes we have shown it being modeled by our 13" antique Poupee; we can see a SMALL BEBE such as our 16" R.D. antique doll or even a grouping of Fashion dolls in a DRAWING ROOM scene being accessorized by this UNIQUE PIECE!
This FABULOUS ANTIQUE MINIATURE HAND EMBROIDERED ALPHABET SAMPLER SCREEN is being offered for the first time on Ruby Lane for your buying consideration-------a RARE NOVELTY for a doll or miniature antique sampler enthusiast!
We will be offering several other wonderful antique French Fashion and Bebe doll accessory items from the same QUALITY COLLECTION shortly, so please check our listings frequently to find a little treasure you can't resist!
Please note that any doll or accessory items used for display are not included in this offering, unless otherwise specified.
