each screen of flattened disk form, one carved to one side with a garden scene depicting an elderly scholar assisted by an acolyte standing amid lush trees issuing from craggy rocks, amid jagged cliffs nestling a balcony, the reverse with a prunus branch, the other table screen carved on one side with an immortal accompanied by a deer and an attendant in a landscape setting, the reverse with a similar prunus branch, the stone of celadon tone with grayish tinge, each plaque paired with a composite spinach-green and celadon jade stand carved with kuilong (5)
Overall height 8⅛ in., 20.5 cm
One screen has a minute bruise to the edge of the cloud on the reverse, and the other has a minute chip to one of the prunus petals on the reverse. Otherwise, both screens are in overall good condition with some expected minute nicks to the extremities and occasional minor natural fissures to the stone. One stand with the arched support broken into a few pieces and restored. Both stands with consolidation to the areas where the two types of jade join together.
