HAND CARVED ORIENTAL SCREEN

This fabulous Oriental Screen came from the most famous madam's 'House' in Lexington, Ky.  Belle Brezing was well known for 'entertaining' the rich and famous of the day.  It is believed that Margaret Mitchell based the character Belle Watling in Gone With The Wind' after Belle Brezing.There were several of these hand carved screens on either side of each entrance into the house which would protect the identity of those 'clients' coming and going after an evening of entertainment. They are 8 feet tall X 4 feet wide.We have this one for purchase. Belle Brezings house was once the girlhood home of Mary Todd Lincoln. It was recently used in the latest Nicole Kiidman movie, 'Stoker' . Price on request
