Chinese table top screen with beauties of Jinling
Miniature Chinese screens decorated with the "twelve beauties of Jinling". A high quality piece of Chinese lacquerware, this attractive Chinese table top screen depicts twelve beautiful women in colourful traditional attire.
The twelve beauties of Jinling originate from the classic Chinese novel "Dream of Red Mansions". The novel covers all aspects of social life during the time it was written, and the screen depicts these daily routines which include weddings, funerals, clothing, and descriptions of Buddhism, Taoism and Confucianism.
The reverse side of the Chinese screen is adorned with a brief description of the novel by Cao Xueqin, and details about the 12 beauties themselves who were actual people living during the time the book was written. The descriptions are written in gold in both English and Chinese characters.
Dimensions: 47cm in length (when fully opened) x 24cm in height.
Comes with an attractive presentation box.
