Hello and thank you for the photos. Can you tell me the measurements of this divider? Some were desk dividers and others were room screens. I can not seem to tell the measurement from the photos. It looks to be on the floor I would say this is a room divider? This will help in giving an accurate value. I will be up so I will be bale to complete this once i get the measuremnts or if you can tell me roughly how tall and wide it is would hep also.

Thank you This is a screen that was done during the mid 1800s and it is silk on wood and brass corner hardware to secure the panels. The painting is starting to show ware however that is normal for the age. The calligraphy and seal I can not make out fro m photos. The value of this screen is(###) ###-####00 and this is room divider. At 36" tall it would have divided the room among beds and seating at tables. "Screens" are 52" and higher.
