Pair of Regency Parcel-Gilt Mahogany Fire Screens

ca. 1800, with shield-form screens set with embroidered silk panels, the centers decorated with chenille-work children with painted faces, the urn-form standards with giltwood acanthus leaves, on tripod bases supported on gilt paw feet.
h. 62", w. 16", d. 11-3/4"


In good repaired and restored condition. The gilding has been renewed. The pieces exhibit indications of routine past repairs, with normal rubbing and wear. One screen is missing the upper brass loop to affix the panel to the pole. It retains its lower one. That same panel has a loss to the chenille-work, now painted white about 3/4" x 4". The frame of the other screen is loose from its back.
