Buyer Protection Guaranteed

About

The elaborate hand-carved screen is fashioned from hardwood (possibly padauk) and is appointed with 32 miniature paintings of dignitaries (paintings of possibly Maharajahs and Maharanis). The wood is "pickled"; and several glass frames covers of paintings are cracked. The portraits are vividly painted and in good state of preservation.
