A fine and outstanding pair of late 18th century pole screens or fire screens. Each with a rectangular panel which is a finely painted still life of flowers and fruit. The stands themselves are soft-wood such as pine or poplar which has been beautifully decorated. The articles are each raised on small turned feet with three long elegant out-swept legs. You will note that each of the panels rise and fall by canter-lever action with weight hidden in the tassel. These screens were designed to protect those sitting close by the fire, particularly ladies, from the heat which could affect the complexion and make up.
