Seller: curwin23 (1) 100%, Location: Calistoga, California, Ships to: US, Item: 353054831494 Japanese hand-embroidered silk folding screen, child size, Meiji period or older. Colored and metallic embroidery thread on black silk background. This very old screen has been professionally mounted on a board backed with canvas fabric. The size of the screen indicates that it might have been a dressing screen for a child, or more likely a screen for some official's desk. I've tried to capture the luster and sheen of the old silk in the photos here, and have included some details of the very fine embroidery that exemplifies the design, artisitry and craftswomanship of this time and place. Dimensions of board with screen attached is 42" x 52". Screen gets shipped with plexiglass box which is broken on the lower left corner (not shown, because of the glare). The hand-carved wooden frames used to mount the silk substrate and the fabric cord hinges used to attach the panels two each other are in excellent condition. The photographs are as a high resolution as possible on ebay, so you can see where some of the silk background fabric is starting to unravel. Buyer pays shipping. Provenance: Ownership History Available, Material: Silk
