FRENCH COUNTRY FOLK ANIMAL SCREEN HAND MADE IRON FROM (STUDIO) ATELIER MAROLLES:
$2400.0

For your consideration, a hand wrought iron screen depicting 6 different animals in 50 6" x 6" panels. This charming rare folk piece was made by an artisan at the french workplace / studio Atelier Marolles in the 1950's. The dimensions are 65" x 31''. Condition is excellent considering I found it in an estate garden exposed to the elements. All animals are constructed from two pieces of convex steel welded together not simply a metal plate cut in silhouette ( camel, horse, elephant, rooster, goose, pig ). Two animals are accurate replacements of the originals. The screen has been finished in rust inhibiting black paint. All areas requiring attention have been expertly refurbished. This Country French piece displays beautifully and is complete and is in fine condition. Atelier Marolles was started by Jean Touret and a group of talented artisans worked there in the 1950s - 60s. Works from this studio are of superior quality, rare and sought after. The first picture is a similar screen found online from an sale. As it is completely hand-made, the images vary slightly. Circa 1955. For pickup only or buyer arranges shipping. All offers considered and appreciated. A rare opportunity to aquire a wonderful object. Please see photographs and thank you for looking.
