We have a lot of Asian pieces at Linderhof and on our trip to Minnesota we were excited to find this fireplace screen at a consignment shop. I consider this a chinoserie piece -- Chinoserie is French for "Chinese-esque" and this screen certainly fits that description.
It has some age on it but not sure how much -- could be something fairly new, something from mid century or something fairly old.
The frame is made of iron and the paint's a bit scruffed -- but that doesn't really give any clue to age -- for a scruffy piece wouldn't necessarily mean that it was old.
It fits perfectly in front of the dining room fireplace. Although we have Asian in almost every room, the dining room certainly has the most.
The best part of the firescreen was that it was marked $100 but it also had a 25% off tag -- it's not a bad buy for $75! (And, actually, I don't think it is a bad buy for $100 -- but with the $25 saved, I was able to buy some "toys" at Williams Sonoma)
