This is a particularly large and commanding pole screen with full carved embellishments: claw and ball feet, carved knees, and if that weren’t enough, the pole itself has a carved vasiform urn below a reeded column. The finial appears original as well.
The screen itself has magnificently carved edgework, and relates to other English pieces of the time. For a related example see our Chippendale card table with serpentine apron (see item sw01346
). Another similarly carved English table in the Norman Adams Collection is illustrated 18th Century English Furniture
, Christopher Claxton Stevens, et al. (See scan below). The tapestry is probably 19th century, and there are no breaks or alterations.
