Fire screen

Recommended Posts

Elizabeth Gazmuri

The original of this fire screen is in the Museum of Fine Art in Boston, in the Oak Hill Parlor. It, and many decorative architectural carvings in the room, were done by Samuel McIntire (1757-1811). The now brown center of the piece will have a very delicate needlework. The frame is 14K gold leaf. The feet are ball and claw.

Gorgeous Elizabeth. Will we see this at Guild School, perhaps with the needlework in place?

It's very beautiful Elizabeth. Thank you for putting up a picture of the original too. It's so nice to see where yours derived from.

What a perfect piece the the Exhibit Room of Guild School next year! I have a beautiful painted fire screen I bought at the IGMA show, would it be appropriate for the roombox I made in Peter Kendall's class, c. 1790?
