Fully restored 19th Century Four Panel Screen in the Regency Style.
Finely carved, gold finish wood, in a botanical design, features panels in a stunning silk by Tassinari et Chatel (front) and an Italian woven silk (rear) by Rubelli, Venezia. It has been hand-finished in the finest trim by Houlès, Paris.
Tassinari et Chatel, which has been family-owned for over three centuries, continues to produce exquisite archival designs; such as those originally commissioned by Napoleon, Louis XIV and Marie-Antoinette.
Tassinari et Chatel’s luxurious Lampas are often used for restoration projects at the Élysée Palace, the Château de Versailles, the Petit Trianon and the Château de Fontainebleau.
Houlès designs and creates the finest of trimmings and fabrics. Still family-owned, the company was founded in Paris, by father and son Félix and André Houlès, in 1928. The company, which began with one store at 18 rue Saint-Nicolas, is now established in over 160 countries.
Presidential residences and castles, such as le Château de Versailles, often select Houlès’ passements for their restoration projects.
Rubelli is one of the oldest fabric companies in the world and in their own words…
“The company came into being at the end of the nineteenth century when Lorenzo Rubelli took over Giobatta Trapolin’s firm, renowned for its production of braid, two-pile velvet, soprarizzo, lampas and brocade as reproductions of antique fabrics. Lorenzo Rubelli bought the firm in 1889 and it was an instant success.”
