CHINESE SCHOLAR'S OBJECTS
EXAMPLES PREVIOUSLY SOLD
THROUGH THE GALLERY
To the Chinese scholar, the preparation for recording his thought on paper was as important as the execution. On his desk lay the four treasures, the symbols of his calling: paper, brushes, inkslab and ink, so arranged as to inspire the best of his talent. Although antique scholars' objects have become scarce and very expensive, a new generation of wood carvers has emerged in China producing beautiful new scholars' objects made of huanghali and zitan.

We work with several of these carvers and have on display in the Gallery a wide selection of wooden scholars' objects which are as delicate and appealing as those crafted generation ago.
