Chinese antique furniture general
information: Ancient Chinese
furniture has a fine reputation in modern China and the West alike, Chinese ancient
furniture features profound cultural facts and superb craftsmanship. The furniture
was mostly made from precious wood, in the Ming (1368-1644) and Qing (1616-1911)
dynasties. It is widely recognized as the best, because furniture before the Ming
Dynasty did not survive wars and time, traditional Chinese furniture craftsmanship
did not reach its zenith until the Ming Dynasty. It reached a high level of aesthetic
success and could even claim a place in the history of world furniture. Chinese
furniture was usually lacquered red or black and then painted, and often carved
and sometimes inlaid with other materials such as precious stones, etc.Ming Dynasty
funiture is known for its simplicity with sparse lines and little decoration while
Qing furniture emphasizes detail and extravagance. Furniture from southern China
tends to be very elaborate whereas northern furniture is big, heavy and grand.
Ming Dynasty Furniture: Ming furniture
is simple with sparse lines and little decoration. It usually features fine and
durable precious woods, such as mahogany, sandalwood, rose wood etc. In the Ming
Dynasty, the demand for fine furniture, the ample supply of wood and the highly
developed tenon-mortise technology all facilitated the success of the Ming furniture.
Craftsmen of the Ming Dynasty used the succinct language of art to express their
inner feelings, and combined ingeniously with the beauty of simplicity and quietness.
So the Ming furniture usually has simple structures, unique shapes and minimal
decorations which would reserve the natural beauty of the wood. Lines were ingeniously
applied to emphasize details such as the back of an armchair and the legs and
resting bars of chairs and tables. Main emphasis was placed on the application
of the natural beauty of the wood texture and adopting latticework and openwork
carving. On eye-striking places such as the backs of armchairs, there would be
simple patterns by relief engraving or openwork carving.
Qing Dynasty Furniture: In the early Qing
Dynasty, furniture inherited characteristics of the Ming Dynasty, from the reign
of Emperor Yongzheng to Emperor Jiaqing. After political power as stabilized and
the economy improved, people began to pay more attention to more material things
in there lives, and demanded decorative and luxurious furnishings, gaudiness and
sumptuousness were a basic features of Qing furniture which was usually heavy
and sizable, featuring exquisitely carved patterns. Some pieces were carved from
head to foot and had inlays of stone, mother-of-pearl, porcelain, metal, and enamel.
Qing furniture had curved decorations and exaggerated shapes that demanded attention.
Chinese traditional furniture has a strong aesthetic appeal due to its apparently
simple lines and the fact that it makes use of "natural materials" such as the
finest hardwoods-no fusty stuffed couches here. Ready comparisons can be made
to Danish furniture, with its sparse lines. With Chinese furniture, you see what
you get. Nothing is hidden, and the wood is polished, stained or lacquered to
evoke its natural earthiness and grainy patterns.Chinese furniture reached a pinnacle
of fine design and workmanship from the sixteenth centuries, the later part of
the Ming period. Fine furniture is characterized by restrained and elegant designs
and complex joinery that held the furniture together without glue or nails..... ...learn more information
