Face Screen in papier mâché C.1840.
face screen elegantly shaped and decorated, the painted floral
decoration following the contours of the outline.
flowers are beautifully painted and they are the work of an accomplished
artist. They combine botanical detail with aesthetic sensitivity: there
are fine lines in the leaves, subtle colouring suggesting fragility and
back also has a finely painted small bouquet.
handle is turned wood and gilded.
