Exquisite six-panel byôbu

Price:  3.150,00

Exquisite and large six-panel byôbu 屏風 (room divider) with a painting on gold-leaf of a pine tree forest along the shore of a winding rocky river. The evergreen pine trees are symbols of a long life. The serene scene is surrounded by dense gold-leaf clouds.

The panels are mounted by two silk borders, a thin blue brocade one, and a broad dark red brocade one. Protected by a black lacquer wooden frame with its original hardware.

The back with a label, reading: “Jidai ô’byôbu (Momoyama jidai)” 時代御屏風(桃山時代), meaning “Antique great folding screen (Momoyama period)”

Total width: 348.0 cm (2 x 59.6 and 4 x 57.2 cm); Height: 171.7 cm.

Considering its age it is in a very good condition with traces of age, wear and old restorations. A considerable feat, seen its impressive ascribed age of approx. 420-450 years (!). Please look at the photos for a condition reference.

This room divider is very light in weight and can also be easily mounted flat on a wall and presented as one piece of art.

When shipped we will add a certificate of authenticity.
