Antique Chinese Shrine
Shanxi, circa 1750
This extraordinary piece was produced in the 18th century for use as a family shrine. It is in wonderful condition, the beautiful hand carved decoration on the upper panels still intact along with the delicate pierced carved panels on the doors. The ornate upper carvings are of flowers, while above the sloping roof are buddist symbol flanked at each end with a dragon. The once bright colours are now in a softer palette of reds, browns and blues. A beautifully made, quite rare piece of Chinese history, beautifully preserved.
