The Drawing Room Antiques of Newport Rhode Island
# 7017. A pair of framed oil on canvas, mounted as a two panel floor screen. Each panel is 38" wide and 77" tall. The screen dates from the 19th century. Wood and gesso decoration; later gold paint over the gilt surfaces; lossed to the gesso decorations. The oil on canvas panels probably date prior to 1800. This screen has been used as part of the furnishing of "Bois Dore" a Newport Gilded Age mansion located on Narragansett Avenue. The panels were the property of Mrs. Elinor Dorrance Hill Ingersol. The panels were purchased for Bois Dore or used in another home. After her passing the mansion was purchased by oil heiress Carolyn Mary Skelly and has subsequently been sold recently. Price: $12,500.00 the pair.
