This screen pattern (#116) is found in the book/catalog Our Doors and Windows: How to Decorate Them. Published in 1889 by Cutting and Delaney, a decorative lattice manufacturer from Buffalo, NY. The catalog can easily be found by searching for Cutting and Delaney.
Cutting and Delaney call this one of their decorative lattices that they invented and is manufactured exclusively by them.
