Ming Scholar's Screens on Huanghuali Stands - 1368-1644
Sold. Thank you.

A very unusual and rare Ming pair of lacquered scholar's partition screens on huanghuali stands.

Against a black lacquer background, each screen features scholar's objects in brown lacquer and mother-of-pearl with accents of gold. They are bordered with a band of leaf patterns done in gold and inlaid mother of pearl. The backs of the screens each have a gold leaf-patterned border while their centers have linear gold paintings of butterflies, plum blossoms and tiny chrysanthemums.

Period: Screens are Ming Period (17th Century). The huanghuali stands are of a later date (19th Century)

Size: Screens (H = 23.6 cm x W = 12.5 cm) Height with stands: 30.5 cm

Condition: Age cracks, some corner chips and some mother-of-pearl missing. One screen has lacquer missing at the lower left hand corner (see photos). These changes through age do not distract from their elegance.
