Pair of Antique Qing Dynasty Hand-Carved Wood Temple Corbels, 19th Century


This 19th century pair of corbels from a temple comes from China, where it was hand-carved in wood during the Qing dynasty. Each corbel is mounted on an elegant black wood plinth. Each item displays two characters, an old bearded man and an assistant following him. The bearded man on the left may be a Taoist monk while the man on the right corbel appears to be a scholar. Above each character is a nicely carved tree, possibly a palm tree and a peony tree. The attention to detail is highlighted by the remnants of original paint that remains. This gorgeous pair of Qing dynasty Chinese hand-carved wood corbels from a temple would be an impressive decorative item in any home, especially in a living room where it would no doubt be a tremendous conversation starter.
