This stunning Chinese screen is an exceptionally well-crafted piece, beautifully decorated with beautiful hardstone carvings. Measuring nearly two metres in height, this screen has clearly been designed to occupy a prominent position in a room.

The screen is made up of six individual folding panels. Each panel is fully lacquered, giving each one a rich, black hue, and has been designed in three parts: the lower part is square in form and set with hardstone depictions of vases and other objects, while the larger middle part features similar hardstone decoration, including an exquisite depiction of a coloured vase with intricate, delicate flowers. The upper part is circular in form and again contains a vase with flowers, together with another, smaller object.

The hardstone decorations are mounted onto a black lacquer ground, which is also decorated around the edge of each panel with intricate scrolling foliate motifs. The dimensions of the screen are as follows:

Open: height 183.5cm, width 243cm, depth 3cm
Closed: width 40.5cm, depth 18cm
