Antique Chinese Carved Wood Wedding Canopy Bed Front Frame Panel Set
Sold as a Set of 5 pieces
This beautiful set of antique Chinese Red and Gold carved panels were originally part of an elaborate wedding bed and consists of a header, 2 side panels and 2 base panels.
Antique Chinese Carved Bed Panels Set Header
The header is divided into 5 horizontal panels, each with relief carvings and a carved border with gold paint. The carved designs are a ribbon block pattern with some leaves.
Antique Chinese Carved Bed Panels Set Side Panels
Each of the 2 side panel is divided into three sections. The top and bottom sections of the screen are relief carved panels. The raised center of the panels feature carvings of floral and fruit designs painted gold on a deep red background. There is a gold painted border around the center.
The screens have a larger pierced carved middle panel with an open oval section in the center. There is also a gold painted frame around the pierced carvings.
Antique Chinese Carved Bed Panels Set Base Panels
The base sections have the most detailed carvings. Each base has a larger lower panel that features a courtyard and many people. Above the large panel is a smaller panel with a beautiful carving of a pheasant or a Phoenix. Against the inside rails is a wood post with a relief carved design at the top
NOTE: The header and side pieces were originally used on the same frame, but the base pieces were from a different set. Because the construction style is so close they work well together to make a complete the set. You can see from the photos that the side panels are slightly wider than the top of the base where they meet. These pieces do not fasten together so it is up to the buyer to make provision to mount them to a wall or wherever you chose to display them.
The framework of the pieces have rounded edges and are finished in the reddish brown wood tone.
Due to the age of these panels there are some small shrinkage cracks and some warping, but these screens are in very good condition considering there age.
You can find may places to display the unique panels. For instance they would make an unusual headboard or a border around a large mirror.
