Technical specifications, photos and description:
Very old Chinese wood carved panel from old Chinese house. Circa 1850s.It probably was part of window.The carving features two scholars standing under some clouds.The carving is carved from one piece of wood and it is relief carving. The carving is lacquered in red and gilded. The gold has disappeared long time ago and the lacquer dried and peeled. The beautiful patination of old wood can only be achieved by age.Old houses in China were demolished in great numbers in the 80s and the 90s to make way for modern developments. A lot of the traditional carvings were thrown out There are not too many of these carvings left. There are lot of new carvings in the market and it takes experience to identify one.Measurement: 16 cm 30 cmI only accept Paypal. have business days shipping policy however if can send earlier will.
