Antique Chinese Wooden Screen, Kuang Hsu Period circa 1875

A hand-carved antique Chinese wooden screen from the Kuang Hsu period in China circa 1875. Please notice the unusually spare modern feel embodied by the placement of the carved elements of this screen as compared to other examples. The motifs are geometric as opposed to representational and are quite graphic in their symmetrical order. Generally this type of piece was used as a room divider and often was backed with a piece of brilliantly coloured fabric to provide contrast. Now displayed as an artifact with a sculptural appeal this screen may be mounted directly upon a wall or upon a free standing mount where it may be viewed from either side.
