Antique French pair of face screens


Antique French pair of face screens in the most perfect colour !. 19th Century.

Face screens were originally used to shield the face from heat from a fire or stove, this had a dual purpose to it, one being preventing a red flush to the skin which would be considered unbecoming, the second was to prevent the thick white makeup used by ladies in the Georgian and Victorian era from ‘melting’ in the heat.
