Used to partition a room and block unpleasant drafts, the standing screen has long been a fixture of Chinese and Japanese interiors. Carefully placed to instill harmony, a tall screen offered privacy and provided an expansive surface for fine paintings.

Likely intended for Western markets, this early 20th century standing screen is comprised of four wooden panels cloaked in black lacquer, and simulates Japanese paper byobu screens with a backdrop of brilliant gold pigment. The four panel screen is decorated with a tranquil scene of white egrets gathered beneath gently swaying tall grasses.

This screen is fitted with alternating hinges and stands upright without supports.

“Over the years, I’ve incorporated many pieces from PAGODA RED into my designs. Not only can they balance new furnishings (and often new construction) by feeling more established, but the pieces emanate a sense of rich history, often leaving you wondering where they were in a previous life. These beautiful pieces carefully hand-selected by the team at PAGODA RED, coupled with their unbelievable customer service, make them a must-have for any home.”
