From the very small pictures it appears to be a table screen (depending on size may it just be decorative)
Its of a stylized dragon called a KUEI or GUEI dragon, meant to represent a spirit of the air.
Seems to be mounted on a dark wood like zitan (Although I have seen lighter woods stained dark)
From the VERY LITTLE I can see looks like quite an attractice piece that should have some value, (dependent on age, condition and size)
Looks over 100 years old, but cannot say anything for certain without some close photos of all the key parts (and probably the underside too)
