1981 Gift of Ruth Maxwelll Johnson in memory of Louis Johnson

This table screen is made of pale green jade. The circular disk has a carved scene on one side that depicts three sages in a garden with a pavilion. The reverse side reveals a mountain scene with a stag and a deer. The deer is a symbol of longevity. The jade table screen rests upon an intricately carved wooden stand.
