This is an antique carved Chinese wood panel that measures 12" high, 22-1/2" wide, 7/8 thick. It is deeply carved with a procession of figures on four horses. The figure in the center is a woman attended by a figure holding what appears to be a flag.
One of the figures on the rear horses seems to be playing a lute like instrument. There is a standing figure in the center holding a very large pennant or flag. There are pagodas, bridges and pine trees in the background, all in deeply carved three dimensions.
The carving weighs about 4 lbs without packing. The piece is in good antique condition from about the 19th century. There is a crack that is about 5-1/2 on the left and a very small chip on the top of a small building on the left above one of the bridges, not very noticeable.
The rest of the plaque, including the horses, figures, bridges and trees, is in very good condition. This a beautiful and, I think, rare carving. I have a matching panel of the same size and wood with a different scene which I will be listing.Please ask any questions before purchasing.
