The Collection of Donald Ballou Reid, Butternut Farm, Glastonbury, Connecticut.
Estimate $200-400

A break at front left is loose and moves, but it is stable when the fender is on the ground, and isn't in terrible danger of getting worse, since the wirework holds the piece together well. There is some rustiness and bending to the wirework, and dents to the brass rail at the top, but overall the screen's condition is fair.
