CHINESE STONE SCULPTURE
EXAMPLES PREVIOUSLY SOLD
THROUGH THE GALLERY
Chinese stone carvers produced beautifully modeled architectural elements incorporated in the houses of wealthy families - columns, animal sculptures intended to guard the entrance to the house and stone furniture all have a powerful aesthetic appeal.

We also collect Chinese hitching posts, used to tether horses - these were often decorated with finely carved mythical creatures. Mostly dating from the 19th century, the sculpture on view in the Gallery in some cases dates from an earlier period.
