A magnificent Japanese burl wood screen. It dates from the early 19C and is very large, measuring 44 inches high, on its stand, and 33 inches wide. The thickness varies from 7/8" to 7/16". It is quite heavy. (I am paying for shipping within the United States.) The 'stand' is comprised of two pieces of unknown wood with slits cut into them into which the screen slides. These supports are not shiny which is how they appear in the photos.
The patina is beautiful. The back duller as there would have been no reason to polish if backed up to a fireplace.
I have had this for many years and it is a pleasure just to look at how beautifully nature exceeds the man made.
