This is a true antique Chinese hand-carved window panel (or window ornament). In the old days it was used with windows, but now can also be used as a wall-hanging art. What a wonderful piece of art! The main theme seems to be a dragon and a phoenix dancing together (or kissing) and a Chinese character in the center that means' longevity'. But, a picture is worth a thousand words.Please check all pictures to appreciate its beauty. The last two photos show its back. It measures 31.5x27.5" which will fit most residential windows (mostly 28", 30", 32" wide, 28", or 30" high). Or hang it on the wall. Condition is very good overall.
Most of the carving is intact and still retains the original beautiful details. There is some small pieces missing, mostly notably in the right half panel, in upper central area.
But because of the nature of the carving, that does not seem to be a big problem, as can be seen in those photos. The frame is thick, sturdy and in very good condition. There are two hinges and other metal pieces installed but they can be easily removed if you wish Using architectural fragments to decorate homes is becoming a new trend in 2017. And this hard-to-find old hand-carved piece is sure to add the old charm of China to your home!
