# 5455. A six panel lacquer and painted folding screen. This Chinese screen dates from the early 20th century. Each panel is 16" x 84". The front of the screen depicts hundreds of figures while the back side displays Chinese writing with paintings of flowers and leaves. Gold and silver paint with some red are used through out the front panels while only gold paint is used on the reverse. From a Newport Bellevue mansion. This very heavy screen (about 100 lbs.) sits on brass clad feet. Condition: scuffs and scratches consistent with use and age. P.O.R.
Item # 4960. A woodblock print byTakahashi Shôtei Signed by the artist. Size of the print: app. 13cm x 19cm. Condition: apparent foxing in the lighter sky area. Mounted on cardboard with the hand written title: " Country by Night" and the name: "Rakutei". I believe the correct title for this woodblock is: "Country house at Negishi".Stamped on the back of the woodblock: "MADE IN JAPAN". Price: $350.00.
Item # 4932. A fine Oriental covered round box. Either Japanese or Chinese. Oriental figures of men with beards are standing around either reading or singing in robes. Size: 4.75" diameter app. 2.75" tall. Condition no edge chips or restorations; there is an inside firing crack as noted in one of the photos. Crazing to the glaze inside consistent with age and type of pottery. There is a clumped spot of 'mud' attached to the underside of the bowl uncovered with glaze as noted in one of the photos. Signed by the artist. Price: $500.00.
Item # 4936. A fine miniature Satsuma Vase. Signed. Size: 4 7/8" tall. Condition: foot edge restoration and over paint as shown in the photos. Price: $550.00.
# 4922. A porcelain cup. Probably Japanese. Signed. Size: 3.25" tall x 2.75" across at the top and a footprint of 1.75". Condition: wear to the lip, inside Japanese writing is worn with some characters unreadable; a brown stain around the inside lip. This cup appears to have been used to fit into or onto another ceramic item; perhaps a warmer or teapot. Price: $350.00.
