A large wood hexagon panel in the Chinese fretwork pattern known as “cracked ice” or “broken glass” has a light, airy look despite measuring nearly 32 inches (81 cm) in diameter. The piece is centered with a round carving of two birds in a flowering tree. Used as wall art, such fretwork brings texture and interest and makes a space appear larger. We have sold many versions of this fretwork pattern in round, hexagon, octagon, square and rectangle frames over the years, many of them antiques originally used in traditional old Chinese houses as interior windows. This is a vintage piece dating to the mid 20th century and is in excellent condition. Dimensions: diameter 31 ½” (80 cm), depth 1 ¼” (3 cm). The center carving is 10” (25.4 cm) in diameter.
