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.
Possibly 20 pairs of these screens are known to have been made.
In excellent condition.
