Pair of Silvered-Walnut Mirrored Screens, Phillip Lloyd Powell, USA, c. 1960s

Origin United States
Period 1950-1979
Condition Excellent.
Creation Date Circa 1960's
Description A pair of three-panel classic screens by Phillip Lloyd Powell, possibly the last pair he ever made. Powell, a consummate studio artisan, made each piece of his by hand, working alone or with an assistant. The design motif for these screens was developed in the mid-sixties and adapted to many pieces including doors, cabinets, dressers, and headboards. Each panel was hand-carved by Powell from American Black Walnut. The “silver” was then applied over red ground. The silver is actually aluminum leaf to give a super bright “pop” effect – as these mirror the era they were designed in. The metal leaf was laid over a ground of either bright red or turquoise blue. These screens are silver over red ground. The panels are piano-hinged with polished steel. The backs of this pair are in black felt.

An estimated 20 pairs of these screens are known to have been made.

Each panel: 86.75″ x 17″ x 1.25″
Styles / Movements Mid Century, Modern
