This screen is much more gorgeous in person than in the picture. It's very solid, and the details are beautiful. Definately worth the money.

I am very happy with this screen. As warned, I had to wipe it down easily with a dry cloth taking brown & even some red color off. I also allowed the screen to air out for several hours outside due to a slight odor. I then lightly swabbed both sides of screen with wood polish. Hence, there is no odor detectable. I realized the 4 panels were too large for my purpose, but by folding 1 panel back and thus leaving 3, no one would notice as the pattern matches up almost perfectly. It is a beautiful screen and exactly what I wanted. Thank you.

Pricey but nice. It does smell a while after being unpacked, but that goes away. There were a few blemishes in the finish where stain was not applied, but overall the construction was good. The best part is now we don't have to look at the litterboxes.

I was impressed with the Flower Jali 4-panel Screen (India) when I received it within three to four days of purchase. It is beautiful and works well with my decor.

This is exactly what I hoped for. It is wider than a shoji screen I have, which only has 3 panels. This has 4 panels. so it can be unfolded into a very stable room dividing screen. I have kids and pets, and my shoji screen was just too delicate. This is heavy and durable. I went with a South Asian influenced decor for my living room, and this piece really sets the mood for the whole room. It is so solid- like an exotic architectural detail. I LOVE IT! The light comes through, showing off the intricate hand-carved details. Now the bad news: Not meticulously carved, like many things handmade in India. The carvers, I am sure, rush to crank out as many pieces as they can, so the finer details suffer a bit, but I doubt that most people would even notice. It also arrived very dirty- I had to clean it first with the vacuum cleaner, then with a damp rag, which it stained dark brown. It smelled of diesel fuel, which may actually be used as an insect deterrent on the wood in India, as it is in many developing countries (lead?). That said, I really do love this, and in spite of the minuses, would buy it over and over again. I also like the fact that I am helping contribute to development in India with this, as it is handmade. India's manufacturing is still labor-intensive, so some guy was able to feed his family by me buying this..

I bought this as a privacy screen into my dressing area of my bathroom. It looks beautiful. Unfortunately, when the light is on, it is very transparent, but I love how it looks and am not disappointed!

This is a nice photo-like screen. It's lighter than I thought it would be so the quality is slightly lower than expected, but it's a fair price and shipping was free for such a large item which is a big benefit. "Photo" quality could have been a bit sharper, yet from a distance the images of New York are clear & great! If you are a big fan of NYC like me then you should love this divider. The fact that there are 2 different images - one of the Empire State Bldg & the other of the late, beloved WTC twin towers makes it a fantastic piece for all fans of NYC! Recommended!

I love this screen! It adds just the right touch to my Soth East Asian decor. I also am pleased with the workmanship and length of the panel when fully extended. Thank you once again overstock.

This screen is exactly like some I have seen while travelling in India and have wanted for a long time. It arrived quickly, in good condition, and no assembly was required.

The screen is just right for the area needed. It is especially great because of the scene on both sides of the screen

I bought this for my living room as I have decorated in a Middle Eastern style. It goes beautifully with my decor. The screen is very sturdy, the color is as shown and it fits in my living room very nicely. I would recommend this screen.

I bought this screen to divide my workspace and my bedroom. It's beautiful, functional and sturdy. It's a bit longer than I estimated, but due to the cutout wood, even folded it lets plenty of light through. I agree that there is a bit f a turpentine smell, but that's only if you are standing right on top of it, sniffing it out. As a fine artist it doesn't bother me at all. And turpentine is made out of pine, so it actually smells like wood. There also was a bit of brown residue on my fingers after first handling it. The craftmanship is great for its price. These screens sell for twice as much in New York's Little India section, so I am beyond happy with the value of this product. My husband and I are thinking of getting another one for our living room.

This was the screen I had been dreaming about for the entrance to my meditation/yoga room. Elegant, creates privacy yet energy and light can flow through it. It takes me right back to Jaipur, India! Truly beautiful. Better in person!!

This screen could go in any room, even a young kids room ! I used it in a guest apartment that I want to have a totally french look to screen off the bed. It is very light and easy to move , also could be hung as art work. A lot of decorating for little money. Remy

This is a fantastic screen! I have been searching for a decorative screen to use for a headboard for our kingsized bed, and this was just perfect. All the other screens I had found were not big enough. The detailing and color are beautiful! I have gotten many compliments on it in the short time I have had it up. It was packaged well also, it had a strange smell to it when we first took it out of the box, but that goes away pretty quickly once it is out.

I love these screens, so much so that I now have three of them. They fit with any decor, and can be used as a decorative accessory, to create new spaces, to hide something unsightly (like our sliding glass door), or to block the sun. They are light weight which allows you to easily vary their location and purpose. Just be careful not to pop your finger through the rice paper.

The cost of shipping $2.95 for this heavy heavy,bulky item (4 screens) is unheard off. Elsewhere this would of cost $300 just for the heavy shipping load!On top of spending a savings on the items themself,i am verry happy-
