Set of Chinese Lattice Window Screens

This set of lattice window screens was probably part of a much larger series that graces the exterior windows of a courtyard home. Typically, the inside of the screen was covered in a bamboo and silk mesh that prevented insects from entering the home. The larger lattice grille prevented birds and bats from entering while allowing the breeze to pass through freely. The upper and lower parts of the screen feature plant-motif carvings and auspicious symbols. The screens are finished in black, lacquer, red (cinnabar) lacquer, and gold leaf. We consider these screens to be of high quality and refinement befitting a wealthy residence. These screens came from the Ningbo region, north Of Shanghai. They date to the late 19th Century and appear to be made from Elm Wood and Fir wood.
