Antique Carved Four Panel Screen
Yunnan, circa 1870
These extraordinary, heavily carved panels are from Yunnan province in southern China, where they would once have formed an internal dividing wall in a traditional home. Each one is wonderfully carved, showing various flora and fauna in the topmost and lower sections, with beautiful details of flower vases, bronzes and books and brushes for calligraphy on the main upper sections. The carvings are expertly executed, beautifully detailed with interlocking, swirling curves - particularly the main sections which are carved through. Used either as a divider or with hinges as a four panel folding screen, the panels would make a stunning feature in a modern space.
