Sculpted from solid mahogany, this elegant firescreen was meant to shield a lady's face (and makeup) from the direct heat of a fire that was so welcome otherwise on chilly winter evenings. Regal foliate scrollwork on the crown contrasts with the animalistic motif that forms the legs below.
Circa 1890s.
Measures 40 x 29.5 x 13.5.
