Shipper: STORE PICK UP
An elegant genuine gold leaf triple dressing screen from about 1880 was purchased in the 1970's at a memorable "on the sight sale" at the "Folies Bergere" cabaret in Paris. There is no proof, but we trust the sweet elderly antique dealer in France who has kept it all these years.
Three panels are original gold leaf with losses as shown, worn down to the red ochre underneath, the silk panels are in tatters and are either charming or need to be replaced.
Shaped and beveled mirrors have been replaced somewhere along the years. One of the double jointed hinges has a broken wing, but it is serviceable anyway.
Each panel has hand carved detailing and measures 21 1/2" wide and 65" tall, so stretched flat, length is 5' 5" overall, but partly folded as shown, width is about 4 1/2.' This item has sold.
