Elegant in construction, a Chinese screen is a very special type of free-standing furniture. Usually decorated with finely rendered or skillfully painted patterns and scenes, it also serves as a beautiful visual focal point for the room. This is especially true for antique solid wood screens that have been used historically since the second half of the Zhou dynasty of ancient China, known as the Eastern Zhou period. Such pieces are highly valued today, so it is no wonder that people make every effort to preserve Chinese screens for future generations. Hence the question arises: how to ship antique of this type and ensure it arrives at the destination in one piece? Fine Art Shippers knows the answer!

Not so long ago, one of our special Chinese clients asked our team to pick up from Sotheby’s and ship antique rosewood screen created in the 18th century. This beautiful piece of furniture was indeed unique, largely due to its many decorative details that were very interesting to handle. The screen was carefully packed and crated to withstand the rigors of the international transportation and delivered to its new home intact. Here are several photos taken during the pick-up and packing process.
