A Rare Pair of Japanese Screens
H: 99in W: 66in
It is very rare for a pair of screens to survive, and in original condition, as these are. They depict idyllic scenes of village life, quite an unusual subject. They come from a private US collection, and have not been on the market for many years. They are being flown to England especially for the Spring Decorative Antiques & Textiles Fair in Battersea, to form a stunning backdrop to William Cook’s stand.
Lacquered frames with cloth borders, all original, with plain backs. They are constructed with paper over the frame, the paper is then gilded, and then the scenes painted over the gilding. Can be floor standing or wall-mounted.
