The Art and Orchid Gallery's very old carved figure has been hollowed out (most of the back, through the neck and into the head, as well as fitting on the back of the chair) by the maker. At least some of this hollowed space was to store rolls of calligraphy. Unfortunately, wood worms also hollowed the figure, mostly the base and the chair, but some worms made it to the neck of the carved official including the scrolls of calligraphy. The figure of this seated dignitary was painted in red, b ...click for details

The Art and Orchid Gallery's translucent porcelain vase, or ping in Chinese, is hand decorated with relief appliques of Prunus branches, flowers and fruit.[86A] Prunus has been a favorite decorative symbol of the Spring on Chinese ceramics from the Ming Period. On our ping the Prunus is done in the style of the Kang Hsi Period.[204B] The sancai (or san ts'ai in Wade Giles) are light blue, yellow centered plum flowers and fruit with aubergine, or eggplant color, tree bark in relief agains ...click for details

The Art and Orchid Gallery's bowl, or wan, was crafted in China of stoneware, or what the French call 'gres', which has a hardness of 7 on Mohs scale but is not translucent.[86A, 33B, 28C] The ornamentation of chrysanthemum flowers, leaves and stems were hand made as applique relief with the wan hand glazed in iridescent sancai, or three color (also called san tsai during the Ming Dynasty).[73D] The colors on this piece of gres are green, a brownish aubergine on the florals and mudd ...click for details

In 12th Century pictorial Chinese art, this the ...click for details

This pair of figures in carved, incised and stained Oriental ivory was probably made before 1920. The ivory carving exhibits some Japanese motifs, such as the rising sun designs on the saddle cloth and the three clawed dragon prominently shown on the Emperor's jacket.[42A, 168B] The Chinese styles, however, seem more obvious to us. They include: the figures' physiognomy, particularly facial and body posture; head dress; and sectional appliques.[25C] There is a back-to-back 'pakwa ...click for details

The Art and Orchid Gallery's antique Chinese vessel has a rough reddish-brown thick stoneware body with greenish-brown glaze running halfway down, not covering the sides or the bottom. It has Tang/Song Dynasty characteristics including a flat foot and bottle shape.[28A, 132B, 175C] Since it is always safest to go from the known to the unknown, and knowing that the Chinese always model after the antique, we feel this vessel may have been made to copy ceramics of the Han or earlier times.[25D, ...click for details

This is an antique hand carved and uncommon mixed media constructed Chinese yao ping (or snuff bottle), with a newer spoon and cover.[84A] It was probably made as a cabinet bottle or vitrine object for collectors at the "fin de siecle" (end of 19th Century).[11B] The Chinese craftsman certainly went out of their way to make a yao ping that was different, and still ornamental, from the thousands of lapidary worked stone, glass, or coral, and ceramic finished, carved ivory, bone and jing ...click for details

These silk Hsiu (embroidered) panels, entirely hand done, adorned Chinese women's chao fu, particularly as edging to sleeves and borders of garments.[155A] The chao fu, or audience robe, was the most formal court garment of the Qing Dynasty. Because the chao fu was also used as a burial robe, it is a rare extant Qing court costume today.[155B] Since the Qian Long reign, there were regulations for making and wearing the chao fu. However, women could apparently choose any assortment of hsiu sl ...click for details
