This is one of the most incredible folding screens we have come across and we had to have it to offer to you. We believe it to be Chinese circa mid-late 20th century. It is comprised of four panels each with two separate and individual hand carved scenes which are bordered top, between, and bottom with beautiful figure, floral, and filigree carvings. The frames and backs are lacquered black, or deep, deep brown, and the carvings are gilded on their protruding surfaces. Those carvings include Asian figures; pagodas; bridges; trees; plum, cherry, and orange blossoms; bamboo; chrysanthemums; and more. I’m sure they tell a story. The backs are not carved but are beautifully finished and gorgeous in their simplicity. One of the wonderful assets of Asian design is its versatility. This screen will be perfect in a mid-century modern setting or traditional; combined with a Hollywood Regency flair or in juxtaposition in an industrial loft. No matter the style or the placement it will be magnificent! Make it yours.
