Bateman's, East Sussex (Accredited Museum)
A folding screen composed of two early eighteenth century embossed leather wall hangings depicting flowering trees, birds and rocks. The decoration was probably inspired by Indian chintz designs. Further panels from the same set hang on the walls of the Dining Room (see inv. no. 761029).
Purchased by the Kiplings on the Isle of Wight in 1902 (see Andrew Lycett, Rudyard Kipling, London, 1999, p.470).
