A Chinese table screen with a central panel of ivory carved in the pierced style with a scene of figures, buildings and trees and a ground of vine leaves and grapes ,the hardwood frame is further embellished with carved mounts . This technique of carving is particularly difficult to master as it needs great precision and accuracy and therefore, only few studios produced it. The screen is a real tour de force. age: C. 1870. size: outside measurements: 28 cm high x 24 cm wide. The central panel: 20cm x 12 cm. condition: very good, a yellow spot indicates an old adhesive. We can obtain CITES EXPORT LICENCE, if necessary (2/3 weeks).
