Description:

Small Leather-covered Screen with Applied Fox Hunt Image, early 20th century, square form with rounded corners and triangular feet, stitched detail throughout, (imperfections), ht. 22, wd. 19 1/2 in.

Note: Jared Bowen writes, "I've ridden horses since childhood and love this foxhunting screen. It takes me straight to Maryland where I ride with friends in the country. The hounds bay, the horses-those great, majestic engines of speed and determination-barrel through the woods and we riders serve at their mercy. There's hardly anything more exhilarating. (I've never been on a ride where the fox was actually caught. They're much too smart for that.)"
Estimate $50-75
