Early 19c Chinese Carved & Pierced Hongmu Table Screen Stand Lotus & Ruyi Design:
Presented here for your consideration is a early 19c Chinese carved and pierced table screen stand of HongMu wood. This stand was produced in China during the first half of the 19c or around c1820 to c1830s or so and is designed to hold a jade, hardstone,embroidery, cinnabar or porcelain plaque amoungst other materials that would be framed to slide into the slots in both side standards or holders. This is one of the earlier ones I have had in a long time and is carved very nicely of lotus flower and scrolling vines in raised openworked reserves with ruyi symbols carried through to even all (4) brackets which many of these early stands are missing as they are easily broken or lost. The raised standards are finished in a chilong or baby dragon headat the very tops and the stand sits on heavy looking thick shaped feet and the reverse side is done in the same manner but without the relief carving as is in the front. Condition overall is very good with some expected surface wear and some edge bruising where at one time someone has touched up a few areas and to one side there are both brackets that have been apparently broken and re-glued but is not bad at all but the central sections are in good order. Sizes: Total Width 17" (from outside foot to foot) x inner width between the upright standards where the framed plaque would go is 13-5/8" Wide plus the grove which is 1/4" x 1/4" Deep x Overall Height is 12" and just the upright standards are 6" in Height. Whether you have current use for this stand now or not it is a very good investment to buy this as it would look excellent by itself or when that special plaque comes around so offer to win!
