Vintage Panel Screen

I’m always on the look-out for interesting vintage equestrian pieces. Just prior to the snow storm last week, a friend saw this cool vintage panel screen on Facebook and tagged me in the picture. Not only did I get it, but I scored it for only $20! AND the seller delivered it to my house![…]
