bed panels

These panels are from wedding canopy beds, which was the most prestigious piece of furniture in the house. While the complete beds are now very rare, the carved panels are highly collectable as works of art.

The bed panels not only represent China’s best woodcarving and lacquer tradition but tell us the legends, myths and beliefs of history. These are shown through the carved motifs depicting theatrical figures, cultural icons and natural objects such as flowers, birds, fish and animals.

These panels are mounted in a timber frame that is then covered in linen.
Drop in and visit our Fyshwick antiques gallery to see these and other interesting pieces that could look great in your home.
