    Condition Report*:

    In very good overall condition with slight fading of the still rich and vibrant color, and very minor loss to paint throughout.  There is a small damaged patch of approximately one inch to the bottom quadrant of the far left panel, below the scenic portion of the panel. The painted motif dates from the 19th century while the hardware which gives every appearance of being original to this screen, has 20th century elements including phillips head screws. This suggests that the 19th century painted motif was framed into this screen in the earlier part of the 20th century, c. 1930s. Whether or not it had been on a previous frame during the 19th century is unknown. The integrity of the frame and the screen together suggests not.
