Screens that Don't Screen Anything

  1. Memsahib, Privacy while allowing breezes to flow in the hot season. You can tell the status of a family if the carving/adornment is on both sides, as it's more expensive, and you must have the servants to clean it.

  2. Don't use a coromandel screen to hide a radiator. Does it no good at all.

  3. Best if inherited, of course. Double side carved, naturally. The one in the image looks Indonesian. Ours is Chinese, from Hong Kong long ago.
