Amazing 19c Chinese Carved & Pierced Rosewood Vase Lid Or Cover Stands Huge 12" :
It is my pleasure to be offering here on the very finest early 19c Chinese carved & pierced rosewood cover or lid I have ever come across! Especially in this massive size being 12-1/2" in overall diameter! This amazing carved lid was produced in China most likely during the first half of the c1800s and appears to be the quality one sees from the Imperial workshops as I have been specializing in wood lids and stands both in collecting and selling for many years and I have owned and seen some very special pieces but this is without a doubt the very finest not only in the carved design and high quality workmanship but also the hand picked pieces of finely grained and colored rosewood. I can only imagine the object that this fine lid was made for and why it was separated other than perhaps the vase or jar may have been broken or lost during the move to the states many years ago as the previous seller had said it has been in our country for over 100 years and was at one time for sale at a fine New York shop. Now I will let the photos give you the idea of just how great this cover really is but as far as condition goes the lid or cover is in Excellent condition with very minimal surface wear and the only fault that I could find is that at one time the outer most ring has had a repaired split to each side across from each other almost like it may have been made in two pieces but it was done in the most professional manner and is tough to really see from the top area and the underneath is also wonderful and one can see the repair a bit better since the rim is totally smooth and then there are two small 3/8" filled holes against the protruding rim where the top was most likely attached to the rim and other than that the lid is amazing! Sizes: Outer Diameter is 12-1/2" x Inner Diameter of opening 7-1/2" x Diameter of outside the rim of the opening 8" x Height 5-1/2". I can only say that whether you have a vase or jar for this cover to fit on or not it is a object that would look fabulous alone or with a stand or even a small group of wood covers. I promise that the winner will be blown away by the quality and overall look of this lid!
