This fine Chinese folding screen is crafted from wood and cloisonné enamel. The screen, composed of six hinged sections, features twenty-four cloisonné enamel plaques, four to section. The plaques are of various shapes and contain finely wrought representations of birds amid flowers over a grey-blue enamel ground. The style of execution is particularly fine and distinctively Chinese.
