About

This early 20th century screen is refined and very beautiful. The image of a bird observing life from a tree is worked in thread on silk mesh sandwiched between two sheets of glass. The panel is signed and sits in a nice rosewood stand. The mesh has developed some splitting due to age but is intact and the needle work pictorial part is still intact. Also some fading to stand's finish.
