Chinese Lacquer Buddha and Stand, Du Hua, FooChow, circa 1900


Superb quality Chinese lacquer Buddha, modelled in toned lacquer over finely carved wood, sitting with red beads and bag in hand, on original rustic stand. References: Foochow (Fuzhou) is one of the five Chinese treaty ports, the capital of Fujian provenance and has been completely open to Western merchants from 1842. As a result, local craftsmen flourished and the city became well-known for its high quality exports of lacquerware (????), paper umbrellas, carved cork pictures, and horn combs. Du Hua was a master lacquer maker, operating in the late Qing dynasty. The pieces are finely carved from wood, then coated with multiple layers of lacquer. This is made from the sap of the beautiful Rus tree.
