Story Behind the Art: This handcrafted item and many others come from a third-generation family-run workshop in mainland China. Their skills have been passed down for many generations. We are proud to support them in their quest to keep their age-old techniques alive for future generations. Many of the artists are hired out of semi-retirement to work from home, training the next generation to become master craftsmen.
The handcrafted touch of artisan skill will create variations in color, size and design. Color differences may occur between the actual product and your computer screen. If buying two of the same item, slight differences will occur from piece to piece.

Thank you. Your feedback will help us create the best experience for our customers.
First off, it is a big piece and does cover a lot of wall. Great if you have big walls to cover which is what I needed it for.
The quality is ok. Not worth *** something dollars though.
The painting is stenciled with an airbrush and a few minor details are hand painted. But overall I can see only the airbrush and stencil technique. Also, the more I look at it...the more the last crane on the right is starting to look like a vulture. The legs of the second crane are a bit awkward in placement as well. But don't want to be too negative, because it is nice when you stand way back.
Hanging...oh yes...just like everyone writes...it is a bear. The folding screen folds both ways, which makes it very hard to get to lay flat against the wall. We used some double-sided tape to hold it against the wall, so that it will not zigzag as it is hanging. But really, even though I read all the previous reviews, and thought smugly, "hey, I can hang it without a problem", I was soon to admit I was wrong. Took about 2 hours to hang properly. Luckily it is not heavy.
It is made of a wood frame around each panel that is covered in black aluminum. The painting itself in on some type of cloth. Maybe silk, maybe not. The back is covered in black canvas.
The gold-leaf has marks on it...so it is not perfect...but if you can hang it in a place where the evening setting sun hits it, wow...it is stunning then.
Did the color match the color displayed onsite? yes
Please tell us about the quality of the product. so so...
As the title is stated "Gold Leaf Cranes Silk Screen (China) ", we were expecting a silkscreen. We have other silkscreens, so was a little disappointed. It is not a silkscreen. The workmanship is not as good a quality as depicted in the photo. There are ripples in the gold leaf. Of particular interest is the brackets provided for hanging. These screw ons IMHO are not appropriate for this art work. We ordered the appropriate brackets to hang the screen and it improved the appearance. At this price they should have been included.
The screen with the cranes exceeded my expectations. Color and workmanship were as pictured and described. Other reviewers complained about the assembly. Even though there were no directions it was clear the hangers must be screwed into the top of the far panels. When hung on the wall, there was a slight gap in the middle, but we fixed that by putting a nail at the bottom of the center panel to hold it snug against the wall.
I received this screen from my husband as our one-year anniversary present. We've both lived in China, and recognize the style of painting but have never seen anything so rich and elegant. It is absolutely stunning above our dining room table. It is definitely meant to be the focal point of a room.
Assembly was a bit difficult, but with a little common sense and a drill, it was no problem.
I would highly recommend this product.
Many of the reviews noted that assembly was difficult. Does the screen arrive in four separate panels?turley6801 on Mar 21, 2014Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
Thank you for contacting us turley6801. The item is not in four separate pieces, it is one piece. It is like a mini room divider, where you can either hang the item on a wall or have it folded to stand on your table. We provide brass hangers with our silk screens if you wish to mount the item up on the wall, the only “installation” needed would be to screw the hangers on the silk screen and then to screw the hangers onto the wall.
Please let us know if you have any further questions.
