RESTORED

Chinese homes were open to the elements to a much greater degree than homes in the Western world, and often did not have wooden floors. For this reason, it is highly likely that any antique Chinese piece of furniture on the market today has been restored. This particular item has been professionally restored, which may mean that some areas have been rebuilt or replaced, some hardware may not be original, and the piece has been refinished on either the interior, the exterior, or both.

Item Specifics:
Shows normal wear to the finish and miscellaneous nicks, dings, and scratches due to age and use.
Free Shipping:
Free shipping only applies within the Contiguous 48 United States and this item will be shipped via a Ground shipping service (UPS or FedEx), approximate 1-6 business day shipping time. EuroLux may ship some packages via USPS Parcel Post, approximately 2-9 business day delivery time, at its sole discretion. All shipments include insurance.
Origin:
Shanxi Province, China
Date:
1900
Material:
CHINESE FIR
Chinese fir has straight and even grains and is typically light brown in color. Not all varieties of fir are suitable for furniture making, but those coming from Fujian province and other high altitude regions tend to have excellent densities and textures so are commonly used.

EuroLux Home
Subject:
FLOWERS
In Chinese culture, flowers symbolize growth, fulfillment, and prosperous new beginnings in life. In Feng Shui, flowers are also seen as symbols of success, flourishing, and good luck. And also, like in Western culture, flowers can symbolize love and unity.
,
PLUM BLOSSOMS
Plum blossoms are thought to symbolize beauty, health, and a long life and are frequently found on Antique Chinese Beds.
,
GEOMETRIC PATTERNS
Elaborate repeating or overlapping geometrical patterns were often used on Antique Chinese Window Screens and on the edges of Antique Chinese Furniture. A range of shapes from curves and circles to triangles, squares, trapezoids, and hexagons have been found. While beautiful and mesmerizing to the eye, these patterns also symbolized lasting and unbroken prosperity and the concept of infinity.

Late Qing Dynasty
LATE QING DYNASTY
Late Qing Dynasty
For centuries in Chinese culture, furniture was only used by the elite and high-ranking government officials. Toward the end of the Ming Dynasty (AD 1368 - 1644), there was a shift in class structure as a rising merchant class had more wealth to purchase furniture for their own homes, and this trend continued during the Qing Dynasty (AD 1645 - 1911). As furniture was seen as a status symbol for this merchant class, and especially under the influence of the Manchurian Emperor Qianlong, furniture became more and more ornately carved with geometrical patterns and animal and botanical symbols, which conveyed messages to the viewer. Late Qing Dynasty Antique Chinese Furniture is known as the people's furniture, and is also called Antique Chinese Country furniture or Antique Vernacular Chinese Furniture, and is made from softwoods such as elm and walnut. It is both attractive and functional, and in some cases should be considered Folk Art.

Because EuroLux Antiques maintains its own website and lists on other online sites, while also operating a physical store location in Newberry, South Carolina, we reserve the right to end any listing early if it has not been purchased outright or no bids have been placed upon the item. On occasion, a piece listed on a website may no longer be available. We do our best to maintain the accuracy of our inventory records but we often have customers interested in the same item at the same time. In those cases, we defer to the customer who placed the earlier order. We apologize in advance by any inconvenience this may cause. Because of this, we encourage all of our buyers to purchase the item as quickly as possible so that your treasured find doesn't sell elsewhere to someone else. Happy browsing and thanks!
