Description: Item # 5503. A Beaux Arts Herter Bros. rosewood three panel folding screen, circa 1895, with pastoral panels created by the firm of William Baumgarten & Company.William Baumgarten was the managing director of Herter Bros. prior to 1891 but left and started his own company after securing the manufacturing rights to produce Gobelins tapestries in the U.S. (active between 1893-1910). The merger of Baumgarten and Herter Bros. is showcased with this magnificent three panel rosewood screen. The firm of Baumgarten was located at 321 5th Avenue in New York City. When these tapestries were woven, the cost per section was between $500.00 and $1,000.00 which translates in today's dollars between $11,000.00 and $22,000.00 each. Examples of Baumgarten tapestries can be seen in museums including The Metropolitan Museum in New York. Size: 76.5" tall and 90" wide. Each rosewood panel is signed "Herter Bros" on the underside. Condition: Splits to the beige velvet panel on the back side and a split to the Aubusson panel on the right side. Scuffs and mars to the rosewood frame consistent with use and age. The carved crest decoration exists on both front and back of this screen.
