SALE Chinese Qing House God Menshen Gilt Gold c. 18th-19th Century Statue Carving
Chinese Qing House God Menshen Wooden Idol Gilt Gold c. 18th – 19th Century Statue Carving. This small (5.5 inches tall) fairly light Chinese carving, is a statue of a House god. The colourful figure is hand painted, and appears to be gold gilded upon its robe and headdress. It is seated upon a throne. The condition overall is very good for its age, which I estimate to be between 1750 and 1850 AD (I have been advised 1750). This piece dates to the Qing Dynasty. This beautiful statue may specifically be a Door god, or Menshen , originally one of a pair placed either side of a door. It may be carved from Peachwood. Please study the photos carefully to ascertain the condition. The Paint appears to be stable, although it has flaked off to some degree, most noticeably at the sides (perhaps during removal from the house), please refer to photos 2 and 3. It may have been repainted at some stage, although I can not see any evidence of this. The base (photo 6) appears to have remnants of an old label attached to it, which I have not attempted to remove due to the potential damage this may cause. The granite base in photo 8 is not included in this sale , it is only shown in the photo to demonstrate how this artwork can be displayed. THE DESCRIPTION AND THE FACTUAL INFORMATION IS TO THE BEST OF MY KNOWLEDGE, ACCURATE AND HONEST. I HAVE OVER 2,400 POSITIVE FEEDBACKS.
