A set of five rectangular carved wood lacquered tablets that were used by students to learn calligraphy.

The thinly carved wood panels have a matte black lacquered surface on one side that resembles slate. The edges of these panels are coated in a red lacquer. The other side of two of the tablets is carved with floral vining and a shou symbol in the center. The other side of the other three tablets is covered with a shinier lacquer then the matte side.

MEASUREMENTS

Each tablet measures 11” (27.9 cm) long x 2 ½” (6.4 cm) wide x 3/16” (.5 cm) thick. Weighs 9.1 oz (260 g)

CONDITION

The lacquer on the wood surfaces is worn. One panel side has quite a bit of loss to the lacquer. The other panels have varying degrees of lacquer loss (please look closely at the photos). Several of the tablets with one side with a dull finish have remnants of chalk visible.

A great Chinese antique scholar’s object to outfit your display desk.
