Greetings Mr. Kelly - Thank you for your submission to Mearto, I am researching your wonderful divider right now. I was wondering if it would be possible for you to upload a closer image of one of the center panels and one of the lacquer so that I may see the details a little more clearly?

Thank you very much and I look forward to assisting you.

Dear Mr. Kelly – Thank you for adding images of your room divider to Mearto. I believe the piece you have is Chinese rather than Japanese and dates to the first third of the 20th century. At auction, you will find a large gap between prices as similar screens are currently selling between $160USD and as much as $400USD. Other than the fine condition, what makes your exceptional is tthe number of panels, it is more common to have a four-panel screen rather than seven, for those reasons, if this piece was in a retail gallery, I would expect to see it priced between $1400USD and $2000USD. That being said, retail prices vary widely depending upon regional variations, market tastes and dealer preference.
Thank you again for the submission, please let me know if you have any follow-up questions.

Sincerely - Erin-Marie
