    Bench and Stool



    (早清明式绛红椿櫈) This is a beautiful 17-18th century antique Chinese Ming style bench made of rare Bai wood (栢木) with old organic red color pigment made of precious minerals. Although Chinese red is generally made from Zhu-Sha, there is a variation of Chinese red colors used by ancient Chinese craftsmen and artisans based on geographic locations. This beautiful red is probably closer and kind of in between Carmine Red (胭脂紅) and Ruby Red (寶石紅). The bench is a Suzhou style. Although its design is simple, it is well constructed. One can see the classical beaded Dao-Ya spandrels underneath the top are well proportioned and executed perfectly in the right shape. There are some repairs to the bench. Bai wood is among other Chinese woods used during the 17th century for making Ming style furniture pieces. The wood is light in color with subtle grain. When polished, this wood feels like silk with a soft glow and smooth texture. Dimensions: 45 3/4” L x 12 1/2” D x 19 1/2” H

    This is a pair of wonderful antique southern Chinese stools made of better and rarer Chinese wood, Ju- Mu and Nan- Mu (Mu means wood), with very rare and refine original old bamboo rattan top intricately woven with delicate patterns.

A rattan seat is not only cooing for the hot and humid southern summer weather, it is also very comfortable to seat on as a “soft- seat” because of its special seat construction which allows for the “bouncing” from the body. The old bamboo woven seat is visually attractive and adds to the furniture piece a sense of elegance and fineness. The original dark red- brown lacquer of the stools have been stripped to reveal the beautiful grains on the blond wood. Minor losses on the rattan.
