A pair of architectural panels from 19th century China have an elegantly simple fretwork design. Made of rosewood, the half-round pieces comprising the pattern are fitted together to form curving lines that emphasize the soft sheen of the smooth wood surfaces. Four abstract trees can be seen in the fretwork pattern. In China, these pieces may have been rescued from interior windows of an old house that was demolished, or they may have been part of a large canopied marriage bed. Both panels are in excellent condition. Dimensions: width 35" (89 cm), height 7-1/2" (19 cm).
