The Fireplace Blind — Several Remarks on the History and Technique of Execution
Languages of publication
The blind was known and applied already prior to our era. This extremely popular window facility offered effective protection against the sun, especially in countries of the Mediterranean basin. The presented object is a fireplace blind produced in France, probably in a Parisian or Lyon manufacture. The type and character of the painted ornament permit us to place the time of its origin at the beginning of the first half of the nineteenth century, after the fall of Napoleon I. Concrete dating, however, is very difficult. The same holds true for the establishment of the identity of the author. Nonetheless, owing to the nature of the execution of the object, its theme and workshop, as well as a comparison with other small examples of the artistic crafts from that period, we can risk the thesis that it comes from the reign of Louis Philippe, 1830-1850.
