This impressive room divider is offered as one. There is scope to reduce the set or even trim the edges to create a suite of pairs of doors. The screen, at 7.5cm thick could serve well as a static partition wall - panelled to each side. LASSCO will consider splitting the set but will charge a premium for doing so depending on the panels selected.

The Royal College of Surgeons of England, is an independent professional body and registered charity promoting and advancing standards of surgical care for patients, regulating surgery, including dentistry, in England and Wales. The College is located at Lincoln's Inn Fields in London. It publishes multiple medical journals.

The origins of the College date to the fourteenth century. The Company of Surgeons moved from Surgeon's Hall in Old Bailey to a site at 41 Lincoln's Inn Fields in 1797. Construction of the first College building, to a design by George Dance the Younger, and James Lewis, took from 1805 to 1813. In 1833 Sir Charles Barry won the public competition to design a replacement. The library and portico of this building are all that remain today after a German incendiary bomb hit the College in 1941.
