Chinese Export Eight Panel Coromandel Screen Six Beauties


Rare and unusual Chinese export eight panel lacquered coromandel screen depicting six beauties. The scene is bordered by a walled pavilion with pagodas and trees. The women appear to be Western descent probably from a narrative tale. The reverse side of the screen depicts a large willow tree in parcel gilt with birds. Signed with Chinese script and a red seal. The black lacquered panels are incised and painted with vibrant natural pigments that have faded into a beautiful aged patina. The screen has minor lacquer losses as expected given age and use that add to its character and charm. Supported by straight legs ending with brass clad feet.
