Early 20th Century Provincial Chinese Disc Wheel

About

Softened by subtle patina, the expressive grain of northern elmwood (yumu) shines in this provincial wheel from an early 20th century farm cart. The wheel is in remarkably good condition, likely due to its resemblance to a coin, a popular symbol of prosperity and good fortune. The disc's swirling grain patterns recall the organic beauty of Chinese scholars' stones and add fantastic texture to modern interiors.
