Pair of Geometric Carved Window Panels
Shanxi, circa 1860
Made from poplar wood, this pair of panels are typical of wooden carved panels used as internal windows in a Chinese home. They would be carved either with decorative motifs - auspicous symbols, flora an fauna - or as in this case with more simple geometric patterns. With metal brackets fitted for hanging, they make fo lovely decorative panels on a wall over a sideboard or bed. Sold as a pair, the price shown is for the two panels.
