The style Rococo originated in France in the 1720’s. The origin of the word is from the French ‘Rocaille’ meaning shell. The form is scrolling and curvaceous, represented by curling Acanthus leaves, a popular motif. It still remains a very popular style today with it’s slight hint of decadence.
This beautiful screen is a wonderful example of something you might discover should you be invited into the boudoir of a French Courtesan. It would be as though you had been transported to the court of Louis XV
The soft dreamy colour applied, has been enhanced with the deep tones of antique wax, accentuating and deepening the curlicues. Imagine it draped with a silky shawl or satin robe as you prepare your maquillage for that special evening out…..or in!
The two side panels have shaped and bevelled mirrors on both sides. The central panel contains framed painterly images of ladies, echoing a romantic bygone era. A different image appears on each side, so you may turn the screen to any side that pleases you.
This piece is a definite one off. I doubt you’ll find another quite like it. Don’t prevaricate too long, these ladies won’t sit around all day waiting for you to decide.
