My Aunt gave me this room divider and I can not find out anything about it. I know she has had it at least 40 years. It is 7' tall and the panels are16 1/2" wide, it is carved and it looks like A pic. of an livingroom from the 30's I think, and it took two men to bring it in my house, very heavy. I can not see the wood to find out what kind of tree it is from. Thank you in advance, any info. will help.

      Thank you, did not think of that, i will start calling today. Thanks again.

  • It is an Art Deco piece, 30’s - 40’s. Philbrook building in Tulsa Oklahoma has a great Art Deco museum and similar pieces.

    Have you tried an on-line search or taken pictures and shown them at antique fairs? Maybe that could help with some suggestions to its origins.


    Good luck!

    It's a beautiful piece. Looks like an Art Deco room divider. I would get in touch with an auction house. They have their own appraisers. Look for any tags, labels, or marks on it. Antique dealers would not be that familiar with it. You may have a valuable piece.

      Thanks for idea, I could not find any marks on it, but someone said that sometimes the artist signs things in the design somewhere, havent found anything yet. I love your idea about auction house, I will defininatly do that. Thanks again. πŸ‘πŸ» 😊
