Antique Chinese Wooden Screens
The hallmark of an educated and cultured household, carved floor screens were used throughout the 18th and 19th century Chinese home.   Whether displayed in the scholars’ library or the highly ranked wives’ chambers, the screens conveyed distinction and were a subtle display of wealth and status.   They usually depicted the four symbols of culture; writing, music, calligraphy and painting.

The carved window screen usually lined the main and upper courtyard areas of the home as a means of ventilation in the summer months.  In colder months, the screens would  be covered from the inside with silk or paper.   We have a wonderful selection of both floor and window screens. All are antique from the 18th-early 20th centuries.
