Carved Lattice Screen, Black Lacquer
Our black lacquer lattice screen works perfectly as a room divider in a living room or just as a statement piece in the corner of a room. This simple, beautifully crafted screen is made up of four hinged panels. Each one is created using traditional mortise and tenon joints, with both sides being bevelled. The Chinese used decorative screens - either lacquered and painted or carved - from early on as a means of providing privacy. Whilst later ones tended to be very ornate and heavily carved, more understated designs like this were popular during the Ming dynasty.
