Review

Louis XV Revival giltwood firescreen, intricately carved with Rocaille symmetrical and foliate decoration. Acanthus with floral and shell details surround the central part, designed to protect from the heat, crafted of silk fabric embellished with embroidery. The fireplace screen rests on two scrolling foliate feet.

Fire screen is a flat, movable piece of furniture, placed in front of the fireplaces to attenuate the heat or excessive light caused by the flames. The most elaborate firescreens were produced in the 18th century. These fireplace accessories featured intricately carved giltwood frames and were prized possessions. A revival of the Louis XV style took place in France in the second half of the 19th century, during the Second Empire. Our fireplace screen was created in 1860 and is a beautiful exemple of the Eclecticism of Napoleon III era.
