Pair Red Laquer Windows

As I look at these windows, I realize how lucky I have been to have had an abundance of wonderful things pass through my hands. These windows, with their colored glass disks highlighting an unusual pattern, are utterly charming. Please notice that they have their original top hinge parts. Although the first impression is that the designs are identical, in fact they are not. There are subtle differences between the panels. That is not to say that they did not start off life together. I think they did. The carver put just enough difference between the two to intrigue the observer to look again. Interest is added. I think these windows have been repainted and some of the glass disks replaced. Lovely to look at; a privilege to own.
