Rare antique wood / plywood and painted gesso "Summer" folding fireplace screen. Romantic, fantasy imagery of castle, serpentine tress and rolling hills with sun / moon on a three section mantle fireplace screen. Likely from the 1920's (based on similar online records), these types of screens were used as decorative art in front of the fireplaces when not in use during the summer months. Cottage decor. Art Deco and Art Nouveau influences to design. Back of screen is plywood. Has a wire on the back where previous owner had it mounted on the wall...it does holds its own as artwork.
32.5" tall x 40" wide (when fully extended. Each side leaf is 8" and the center is 24" wide.
There is much craquelure over the entire surface....which offers a wonderful patina to the piece. There re some missing chunks of the layered gesso treatment in spots. One hinge has been replaced. Uneven coloring. Would need restoration to return it to something that resembled its original condition or a lighter restoration to keep the patina but fix a few of the more obvious chips to the surface.
California sales tax of 8% applied to CA residents.  Tax waived if buyer submits a copy of a valid CA reseller’s license number.
