This screen, room divider is in colors of black, gold, amber and some charcoal. It features a painted landscape depicting a village scene near a river, with boats and fishermen, pavilions, mountains, weeping willow and pine trees throughout.
Surrounded with a finely detailed border having cartouches with flower and plant specimens. The bottom has stepped cut-outs with feet capped in brass. The opposite side is quite lovely also. IT would be a great headboard.
One thing I find particularly nice about this screen is it's fairly simple design, being a Japanese trait. Another is that it easily comes apart and you can also split it up and have it say in 2 corners of the room. Screens are perfect for hiding not so good architectural details.
Each panel is 16" wide x 1"thick x 76" tall. If placed flat on a wall it would be 96" wide but if freestanding it will be folded accordion style and become much smaller.
The screen appears to be lacquer over a type of papier-mache made between the 20-40's and probably brought back by a soldier after the war. Edges are worn from age and use.
I've pinned a pic of- how to -by Suzanne Kasler, Toad Hall where she has hung the screen above a mahogany sideboard.
