    (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

  • #15588 Pair of Antique Rectangular Stools with Very Rare Fine Original Woven Bamboo

    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. Such fine old rattan weaving on furniture pieces practically did not even exist any more even during the mid 20th century as the old craftsmen for weaving such fine weaving no longer existed then and now. Most of the replacements for the rattan for the old Chinese chairs nowadays are much coarser compared to, with wooden seat frame underneath usually altered. An old furniture piece with such fine and intricate original old bamboo weaving was a pick out of many thousands if one could even be found even way back the early days. This is because rattan breaks easily when used as seating, few old Chinese furniture pieces could retain the original old bamboo woven seat. The old rattan weaving on this pair of stools are much finer than most others. A rattan seat is not only cooling for the hot and humid southern summer weather in china, it is also very comfortable to sit on as a “soft- seat” because of its special seat construction underneath 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. Dimensions for each stool is:20 1/2"w x 12 1/2"d x 19 1/2"h.
