Quantity
This six panelled room screen is the most extraordinary colour, it is almost impossible to describe the astonishing shade of blue.  The paper has been hand decorated with real gold leaf - it is very unusual to find this decoration in tact.  The reverse is decorated with a lovely floral paper.  This could be mounted on a wall or simply left standing behind a table or chest. Dimensions: 160.5cm H x 330cm W (55cm per panel)  Condition: We have decided to leave this screen exactly as we found it.  Therefore there are some watermarks, and a couple of small tears.  At the bottom the paper has got damp at some point.  We hope you will agree that this only adds to it's character and beauty.
