Description

Oranges are symbolic of love, happiness, and the sun. In the Asian culture oranges and mandarins are often gifted as they are believed to bring wealth and good fortune to those who eat them. Peaches are claimed to ward off evil spirits and are symbols of longevity. We can’t decide which of these fabulous fruits grace the front of this phenomenal work of art, so YOU get to decide!! And, although you may not want to eat it… you are about to become VERY fortunate as you consider this GORGEOUS vintage silk folding screen for your home!!!! It is nothing short of FABULOUS!!!!! It is comprised of four panels with details of a tree adorned with oranges (or peaches!), leaves, vines, and a beautiful bird intricately hand painted upon a gold leaf finished paper, surrounded by a silk brocade border and a gorgeous black painted wood frame. The back of the screen is all black silk, and it has lovely brass hanging brackets at the top center of each panel. This wonderful Chinoiserie style screen would be a perfect wall hanging in an entry or hallway, over a credenza or bar cabinet in the dining room, in your yoga room, or even over your bed. If you have a smaller space, it could also be used as a room divider. The hand painting is so sophisticated you can almost hear the soft chirping of the bird in the distance, the light cracking of the tree branches blowing in the breeze, and you can almost smell the sweetness of the fruit …Ahhhh, a moment of Zen! Call it a Byobu, call it a folding screen, call it a wall hanging or a room divider. But whatever you choose to call it… call it YOURS!!!!!
