Resumo: The city of Canton was, during the eighteenth century and the first half of the nineteenth century, the main supplier for the exotic Chinese curiosities brought by the merchants and travelers to the West. Furniture pieces decorated with black lacquer and gold were one of its most characteristic productions. The almost complete closure of Japan to the international exchange, except for the Dutch presence in Deshima, created the conditions for the Chinese manufacturers and merchants to replace the suppliers of the apreciated maki-e lacquerware. From 1700 onwards, Canton became the main production center of the black lacquer decorated with gold for the export market. In wooden substrates, black lacquer was applied creating a shiny and appealing surface. The decorative motifs were then decalqued in the black surface, drawned with lacquer and then gold was sprinkled while the lacquer was still wet. Almost all the furniture pieces combine a western shape with an eastern decoration. Screens were the exception. These pieces combine both oriental shape and decoration. The typology became quite popular in the West due to its complete exotic appearance and association and became part of the furnishing in many interiors. Screens decorated with black lacquer and gold are present in many of the western public and private collections attesting for this preference. The decoration and motifs used in the screens follow the ones used in the lacquerware of this period and find some parallel also in porcelain and other decorative arts.
