Subject:porcelain & wood Table Screen Help Needed
Posted By: lori Sat, Feb 10, 2018 IP:

four panel wood and porcelain table screen measuring about 13 inches tall.

Perhaps someone can tell me the story behind this, or translate the top panels, or at the very least tel me if what I have is just tourist-art or if it is something of more value.

I appreciate any help given.

Thank you.

The panels are newly made, can be purchased online.
Porcelain paintings are made in Jingdezhen
The text on the enlarged panel is a quotation from a poem of the Tang Dynasty poet Wang Wei(王維).
"Imperial city roofs hold two phoenixes in cloud
The spring foliaged trees shelters multitudes from rain
When the weather turns favourable for outing
Here is our Emperor ready-no wasteful wanderer"
