Larger folding scenes were an important part of furnishings and served multiple functions, from purely decorative devices to partitioning rooms in private quarters or keeping out draughts. Smaller sets of panels such as the current lot had a similar function, utilised not just to partition area of the room, but also purely for decorative purposes.
It is rare to find such a well preserved set of ten plaques. Individual examples have appeared at auction, including one sold in our London rooms, 13th May 2015, lot 158 and another sold in these rooms, 30th May 2019, lot 769.
