|Nicely grained beechwood gives this pair of late 19th century Chinese panels a smooth, satin-like finish. The fretwork design is elegantly simple but required numerous carefully cut and carved pieces of wood fitted together to create the look of an interlocking wood chain. The panels were used in a horizontal orientation and most likely were part of a large day bed. The metal hangers are new and recently added. These panels are ideally sized for use as headboards over twin beds. They are in excellent condition. Dimensions of each: height 15.5" (40 cm), width 51" (130 cm), depth 1' (2.5 cm).|
