Toward the end of the Ming Dynasty (AD 1368 - 1644), there was a shift in class structure as a rising merchant class had more wealth to purchase furniture for their own homes, and this trend continued during the Qing Dynasty (AD 1645 - 1911). As furniture was seen as a status symbol for this merchant class, and especially under the influence of the Manchurian Emperor Qianlong, furniture became more and more ornately carved with geometrical patterns and animal and botanical symbols, which conveyed messages to the viewer. Late Qing Dynasty Antique Chinese Furniture is known as the people's furniture, and is also called Antique Chinese Country furniture or Antique Vernacular Chinese Furniture, and is made from softwoods such as elm and walnut. It is both attractive and functional, and in some cases should be considered Folk Art.Object:Window ScreenThe Fine PrintBecause EuroLux Antiques maintains its own website and lists on other online sites, while also operating a physical store location in Newberry, South Carolina, we reserve the right to end any listing early if it has not been purchased outright or no offers have been placed upon the item.
