Stunning table room divider entirely in ivory and gold lacquer with Shibayama technique decorations and mother-of-pearl inlay, polychrome ivory, horn, wood, turtle and coral. It is worth noting the dense decoration and the fullness of inlay that we can find in a few other Shibayama objects. Scene of daily life in a village with street vendors, farmers, entertainers and geishas.
On the back, we can find a refined and amusing engraving with monkeys (reminiscent of those depicted by Mori Sosen, a painter who specialised in the depiction of monkeys with such an ability to create a "school") while they play and have fun with other animals. Finely chiselled silver hinges.
In excellent condition.
