20th Century Chinese Coromandel 6-Panel Folding Screen

Comprised of 6 lacquered coromandel panels, this Chinese folding screen is intricately designed and expertly crafted. The panels' central design is rendered in intaglio and painted in with enamel. It depicts a stunning, elaborate courtyard scene with architecture, blossomed trees, a gathering of people in conversation, and a sprawling mountainous landscape in the background. Framing this scene is a frieze of bouquets and other precious objects. On the reverse side, we see more of the lacquered burgundy wood. Hand-painted gilt floral medallions and borders decorate each panel.

Dimensions for each panel:
17.75 in. width
1.5 in. thickness
84 in. height

Condition notes:
In good condition. There's wear that's consistent with the screen's age and use. This includes surface scratches, loss to lacquer, and dents to edges and corners. Overall in sound shape. The hinges are a later replacement.
