59" x 36" x 1/2" trifold wood art piece with pictured white lotus flowers. signed
Purchased in Japan early to mid 70's
Thank you for contacting Mearto. This is a large Japanese painted screen with images of lotus flowers. It was likely made in the 20th century. There is a silk brocade border and a calligraphy inscription on the edge. The meaning is a poem related to nature; the seal is unidentifiable. Folding screens like this vary in price, based on condition, and skillfulness of the painting. Yours appears to be in great condition and the painting technique is at a high level. Based on sales of similar items, the Fair Market Value is between $250 and $450.
