These have come straight from a house clearance, and as such very little is known about them. Theyre hand painted, and in a relatively good condition. I have made no attempt to clean them and they are slightly sticky - with some light brownish residue around the edges of the glass which suggests they were possibly part of a screen decoration or something similar at some point in their history.
The 6 larger ones are portrait sized and the 6 smaller landscape sized. The larger ones measure approx 9.4cms x 24cms and the smaller ones measure approx 7.5cms x 14cms. There is some minor paint loss to some areas, but nothing that really detracts from the overall impression of a rather beautiful collection.
Some of the glass edges are a little nibbled, but the only really noticeable area of damage is to the bottom edge of one of the larger panels which has a small piece missing (please see photographs). All of the panels feature Geisha women in the outdoors, surrounded by nature, blossoms, water and outdoor features.
