Four Chinese Republic Lacquered Wood Overlay Inlaid Figural Wall Panel
item#: 1345177
price: $450.00 Set of Four Panels
Set of four Republic period Chinese lacquered wood wall panels decorated with gilt painted background details combined with overlay decoration in colored hardstone, shell, bone, and other materials. The panels are inlaid with figures engaged in a variety of activities in an outdoor setting: two panels featuring scholars and beauties, two panels with warriors on horseback. The black lacquered frames with metal hangers to the top are painted with polychrome floral cartouches set within a band of gold flowers. Early 20th century. Each panel weighs about 7 lbs. and measures 40” x 17 ½” (total size of four panels: 40” x 70”). The panels are in very good overall condition. There are some losses to the inlay on the tree branches, two small splits in one panel, some shrinkage in the panels at the side, and some minor chips and one old repair to the lacquer frame. From the lifetime Asian art collection of a 97-year-old former Scottsdale, Arizona resident. The bulk of her collection was acquired in Minnesota and Chicago in the 1950s and early 1960s. Additional close up images are available upon request.
