1950s Plaster Screen
A large, decorative and unique pierced plaster screen originally made for the bizarre and elaborate Ceylon Tea House, in Manchester the interiors of which were designed as an Indian Palace. This architectural gem of a building dating from 1910 was unexpectedly destroyed in 2002 despite the intervention of The Manchester Civic Society and the Victorian Society and its incredible wood interior, panelling and elaborate mirrors removed and mainly destroyed. This piece is a rare survivor now restored and dates from the buildings refurbishment in the 1950s.
