Object Description

An extraordinary and extremely rare Papier Mache corner stand, the back upright panel comprising a reverse painting on glass showing a finely detailed bouquet of flowers created with translucent palette and Mother o’ Pearl. The inclusion of all the standard decorative motifs used during the heyday of this material, c. 1835 – 1870.
Possibly American.

Object Condition

The condition shows considerable signs of wear consistent with use and cleaning rather than conservation but is indicative of one family ownership through periods of praise and disdain for such high-style Victorian exuberance.
