Chinese Double Dragon Architectural Valance

Buyer Protection Guaranteed

About

Ancient Chinese architecture has set principles of design and that can be traced back three thousand years or more—to the early Zhou Dynasty. The beauty of the Classic timber framework buildings was often enhanced with gilded paintings or elaborately carved embellishments, like this striking wooden valance carved with two abstract dragons amidst ribbons of smoke. Architectural elements of this size and age are exceedingly rare: the valance was made over 250 years ago in the Shanxi region of China.
