Description: early 20th century, grape and pomegranate motif, nail head trim.
61 x 66 in.
This imposing screen, from Thomas Lynch's Greensburg, Pennsylvania mansion, helped furnish a somewhat unconventional leather-lined room in the home.
By descent from the consignor's great-grandfather Thomas Lynch, a prominent Gilded Age industrialist in Pennsylvania. As president of H. C. Frick Coke Co. and as a director of the powerful U. S. Steel Corporation, Mr. Lynch came to be closely associated with industrial giants such as Andrew Carnegie and Andrew Mellon. The Lynch mansion in Greensburg, Pennsylvania was a monument to its owner's tremendous success. Completed in 1907, the home was especially renowned for its custom stained glass windows created by Louis Comfort Tiffany.

Condition Report: Wear to edges; some later screws; wear to canvas backing; scratch to lower right panel.
