Product Description

A beautiful room divider…

Although we are unsure of the exact age of this piece, we would suggest that it dates to the latter part of the 20th century (potentially earlier). Stretching over 1.8 metres when open, the screen has what we think is a Roman theme and features buildings, birds and flowers. It’s a delightful piece, naively made and hand painted, but oozing charm and authenticity

The screen itself is functional, decorative and elegant. It’s relatively light weight, yet once extended to its full width its sturdy and does what it is meant to do (act as a screen or a room divider). The wooden frame is made from a thin lightweight wood with a hollow centre. The artist has painted the mural directly onto the board with great effect, albeit it’s naively done. We think its a beautiful piece, and has a resemblance to some of the early paint work done on early fairground rides and advertising. Either way, the colours and scenery are eye catching and this would look beautiful in any room…

We are offering this piece in ‘as found’ condition, therefore there is natural wear and tear. There are some surface scuffs and abrasions across the screen, paint chipping and some tatty areas. Structurally the screen is great and folds and extends as expected. Given the general wear and tear, we feel the current condition simply adds to its charm and authenticity. Please do study the photos to help with your analysis as it would be hard to highlight all imperfections…
