This exceptional antique is in the Eastlake Style and is Victorian in its lush decoration and scenes hand painted on canvas and signed and dated by the artist "M (or H) Reichart (or Reichert) '98" lower left on the central canvas.The beautiful walnut frames for each of the three panels are intricately carved and footed. The original brass hinges are strong so the panel can be adjusted to stand alone or fold up completely. Condition is excellent, noting some minor imperfections in the frames, a repair to the top central carving and the paintings would benefit from a professional cleaning, though they are quite beautiful with vibrant colors. There are a couple of tiny flakes to the painting, but nothing that takes away and probably easily repairable. The back is lined with original fabric, now faded, but my guess is that it was pink. This has been kept in a smoke free home for about ten years.
