This 19th-century Chinese bench was constructed of northern elmwood (yumu) using mortise-and-tenon joinery techniques. The provincial bench has a narrow seat raised by splayed legs and is simply decorated with cloud-form carved spandrels. Originating as shared seating in public gathering spaces, simple benches such as this would have been placed in front of the home as outdoor seating during the hot summer months.

“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!”
