Faraway Places with Strange Soundin’ Names…

Have they always been calling to you? Or perhaps you let the world come to your home instead of vice versa?
Either way, you would enjoy the charming tableaux on this impressive chinoiserie screen.

On a richly painted black wooden screen are the characters and scenes of a royal house. As you run your fingertips along the raised relief, you will feel the smooth coolness of the washed, colored stone that comprises the bulk of the buildings and people, with the exception of their heads.

The simplicity of the props make it look like a stage set, with the actors pantomiming their parts…

And the beautiful decorative border and back of the screen enhance, but do not distract, from the scene

I might add that there is a sturdy solidity to this piece that indicates a certain high quality of make, as do the impressive hinges that unite the panels.

They call me a dreamer, well maybe I am,
But I know that I’m burnin’ to see
Those faraway places, with the Strange soundin’ names
Calling, calling me…
