Middle Eastern Inlaid Wooden Screen / Room Divider
This extraordinary middle eastern wooden screen dates from the early to mid twentieth century, and features some of the most extensive and exceptional mother-of-pearl, ebony and bone inlay we have ever seen. Motifs are generally Islamic and geometric, including Mashrabiyah panels. In addition to the inlaid decoration, the curved tops feature a row of turned spindles, and the center panels feature intricate latticework crafted from assembled spindles. It stands 80" tall and each panel measures 24" wide. The screen measures approximately 62" across in our image. Condition is very good for a work with such extensive inlaid veneer. There are no visible losses anywhere.
