Chinese Artifacts - Panels
About Ning Po Carved PanelsMost antique Chinese panels originated in the Northern city of Ning Po. Each panel is a unique work of art, no two are the same.
With the city's destruction at the end of the 18th century, came to an end of the creation of these marvelous storiespresented in sculptured wood. In recent times some poorly executed attempts to to revive the art are being exported.

Rarest are at the temple carvings, generally open work in monochrome red gold tints. The polychrome palace carvings were fund in the Imperial Palaces and those of mandarins.

The value of Ning Po carvings is determined by several factors.

  • Subject matter (War scenes and animals are most valuable)
  • Depth of sculpture (The deeper the image, the higher the value)
  • Condition
  • Sets of two or more, covering the same general subject created by the same artist.

Ning Po panels are estimated to be around 250 years old. Many Chinese art treasures were destroyed during the so called cultural revolution
by the Red Guards, therefore top quality panels are very rare to find.

All our panels carry a certificate of authenticity.
