A magnificent and dramatic circular carved screen. A very unusual piece with detailed carvings of ancient Chinese family scenes set into panels surrounded by a beautiful mosaic of crushed mother of pearl. This is a forgotten art unable to be replicated in China today. The wood surround is an attractive dark oak colour and the carvings are brushed with antique gold. A splendid piece, which would make a very impressive overmantel mirror, with antique-style or contemporary mirror glass.
