The amount of detail in this old Chinese cork carving is truly beautiful. From the intricacies of the architectural elements to the delicate trees and fronds of the plants it really is amazing to study. Two birds with white and black plumage that I believe are Chinese cranes accent the scene. The carving is encased in glass with a wooden frame which has a base with Oriental details. The frame has a black lacquered finish. On the bottom is a paper label that reads; Made in China with Oriental characters. I believe this is from the 1930’s - 1950’s.
Overall it measures about 7 ¼” high. The oval framed portion measures about 8 3/8” wide by 5 3/8” high by 1 1/4” deep and the base is about 6 ½” wide by 2” deep. Overall it is in nice condition with minor wear. I can see one tree frond lying on the ground which probably should be but otherwise there appears to be no other damage to the carving or to the glass. There is some light wear to the paint and it looks like the glass is a little dirty inside. The frame has a few joint separations which I have tried to how in the photo.
