This three-fold screen is constructed from acid free card.

It is fully hinged and hand-painted in water-based paints.

One side is decorated, with Chinoiserie panels in the Rococo style, and the reverse is undecorated.

Both sides have been colour washed and finished to look gently used and aged.

Both sides are sealed and have a durable finish.

I have a pattern for the screen design and sketches for the decoration but, as these screens are hand-painted, no two are ever exactly the same - this is particularly true in this case as the bluey-green of the background is not easy to reproduce.

The one in the photographs is the one on sale, and the one you will receive.


SIZE

5 and 13/16th inches to top of arch

Just under 4 3/4 inches open flat out

Each panel approximately 1 9/16 inches wide

1/16th inch thick

(Approximately 14.8cm x 11.9cm x 0.2cm)


HISTORY

Screens have been used for a very long time. They come in all shapes and sizes and have been decorated in every imaginable way.

This screen recalls the European vogue for taking Chinese designs and re-working them for the European market.

It was inspired by some hand printed wallpaper that I believe was produced by a French company called Inaltera in the late 1800s / early 1900s.

This dolls' house screen is not a “toy” – it is a “collector’s item”
