Large 19th Century Chinoiserie Folding Firescreen
A fabulous 19th Century Chinoiserie folding firescreen with concave corners. The front of this antique firescreen is beautifully painted with a traditional Chinese garden scene of figures, oriental buildings, birds and trees under drifting clouds. The return panels are equally well painted with male and female figures. The front panel and side return panels are edged with a gold painted foliate border. There are brass hinges to the top, maybe to fix it if fully extended, these fold to the back and do not need to be used. The condition of this generously proportioned antique firescreen is good, it stands securely with no wobbles. There are some minor areas of wear to the surface decoration and edges, these can be seen in the photographs and do not detract from the wonderful decorative appeal of this stunning screen. This is a very unusual and beautiful firescreen that would make an eye catching addition to any interior, whether traditional or contemporary.
