Providing a glimpse into Chinese life more than 100 years ago, this vintage photograph depicts a well-to-do family in a graciously appointed room. The print is rich with clues about the era’s styles and conventions, including the mother’s bound feet. Photography was introduced to China in the mid 19th century, capturing a way of life that would largely disappear when the Qing dynasty fell from power around 1900, shortly after this image was taken.

“I am particularly fond of PAGODA RED as we have known the family for so long. Betsy is a professional in every way and her intelligent taste comes from a long line of family knowledge in the arts. She and her team are the very best to work with and we find treasures with every visit!”
