A fine and outstanding pair of late 18th century pole screens or fire screens. Each with a rectangular panel which is 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 weight hidden in the tassel, so that the heat from a roaring fire does not disturb anyone standing in front of the fire.
