Antique Door Lintel with Relief Carvings
Hebei, circa 1900
This elegant panel is crafted from beech and in the pale, natural wood finish. It was crafted in Hebei province in north eastern China, and would have been placed across an internal doorway or entrance of a wealthy household. The panel is fairly typical in style, decorated in carved relief. This one depicts five ladies set centrally between two floral patterns. This main section is set into a frame at the top and sides, with the end of each side frame ending in carved, fearsome looking beasts. An ideal choice to adorn the wall above a sideboard or bed, or place above a door in keeping with its traditional purpose.
