"The nightingale and the plum blossom" is the title given by its creator to this very pretty screen. The song of the nightingale associated with the delicate plum blossom announces the coming of spring. The artist combined these two elements into a charming scene of peace and serenity. Origin: Japan.

On a black lacquer ground (ro-iro) the hiramaki-e gold lacquer decoration takes up a scene from the "Tale of Genji" or "Genji Monogotari" novel written in the 11th century by Dame Murasaki Shikibu where we see the Genji on a terrace in discussion with a woman while his servants wait for him near a carriage under pines. The inside of the lid, witha mura nashiji ground, is adorned with a silvery autumn moon among the grasses. Supplied with its original wooden box.
