$388per set

About

Lavishly pigmented and carved with intricate detail, these petite mythical figurines were originally decorative elements from an ornate 19th century bed surround. Each gilt figure depicts a character from the Classic Chinese novel "Romance of the Three Kingdoms." A 14th century historical novel attributed to playwright Luo Guanzhong, "Romance of the Three Kingdoms" is a dramatized account of the final years of the Han dynasty and the emergent power struggles of the Three Kingdoms period, spanning from 169-280 AD. Drawing from popular legend, the novel uses the turbulent lives of feudal lords to tell a tale of fallen empires and the inevitability of fate.
