Fire Screen, Queen Anne Pole Screen,
Mahogany, Embroidered Floral Panel
Possibly American, Circa 1760
A true carved acorn finial surmounts the pole which continues to the turned standard;
the whole resting on cabriole legs terminating with scarcely encountered egg and rat
claw feet. The embroidered floral panel, basket resting on table is worked in wool
threads on a linen ground; backed with silk. Period repair to very-top of standard
where pole is received; small perfectly fitted half-inch brass collar [mahoganized]
was fitted and secured with screws to insure the integrity of a tight and perfectly
aligned short-fissure. The pole screen lived in this writer’s office for two weeks
with me never noticing this clever repair. There are a few imperfections to embroidery.
