Finest 19c Chinese Carved Boxwood Figure W Dog Great Movement & Realism On Stand For Sale
Being offered here for your consideration is the very best early Chinese woodcarving I have ever owned in a good large size depicting a figure with his dog while standing with one foot on a leather or canvas jug and the other on its wonderful large carved rockery style stand. This carving was produced in China around the mid 19c out of what I believe is boxwood on top and a variety of hardwood for the stand that is pegged into the carving but only the pegs are glued into the stand so the figure can be removed. The carving is superbly executed with the finest details and shows great movement and life with the garments flowing in the breeze having delicate folds. The carving has taken on the most attractive caramel color with its original finish glowing with 150 years of patina having inlaid eyes and teeth. A few of the fine points are the figures hair, hands/fingers, ribbons & bows as well as the foot inside the sandal resting on the leather or canvas jug that even shows a engraved repair or simply its construction along with the dog's face and well done paws with long life like tail and then the stand although at first seems simple when in fact it is actually a complex carving of rockery along with a branched pine tree. I will let the photos do the rest but again this is no question a great investment that will increase in value as this explosive Chinese antiques market continues to capture so many collectors from all over the world. Condition is excellent with only having a few tight age lines & light surface wear otherwise it could get no better. Sizes: Figure Height 12" x Width 6-1/2" x Depth 5-1/4" With Stand Height 14" x Width 8-1/2" x Depth 7" This is a large and fabulous wood carving and is impressive from every angle and I would highlyrecommend adding this to the established or beginners collectionso offer to win as the winner will be thrilled when this carving reaches your door!
