Hello:
Can you tell me where this screen is from? Thanks.

Hi Rhonda,
These were made all over - by the early/mid 20th Century it really could have been anywhere which is why I didn't specify a region. Most probably American or English - if you'd like me to say that I'm happy to add that to the description, just let me know.
