A Chinese 8 panel "Coromandel" screen from about 40 years ago has subtle colors against a black ground.
The traditional Asian technique involves building up layer upon layer of colored lacquer, covering all in black, then hand carving through the layers to the various colors underneath, creating a delicate imperial palace summer garden scene.
On the reverse is an understated design with flowers, trees and birds. There are minor touchups plus some wear and mars for character, see photos.
Each panel on this vintage screen is 16" wide, 1" deep and 7' tall, when stretched out flat, length is 10' 9" total, but when partly folded accordion style as shown, it is around 8' wide.
See 30 photos on Harp Gallery website that enlarge to full screen size.
