How to appraise Ming and Qing furniture

by:Jinlon Furniture     2022-04-03
Ming-style furniture is simple, simple, bold and regular, and Qing Dynasty furniture is exquisite, graceful and elegant. Ming-style furniture is dominated by huanghuali wood, and other woods are rarely used. On the other hand, the yellow rosewood furniture has more tables, chairs, and cabinets, without inlays and carvings, only very few carvings. Due to the lack of huanghuali wood in the late Ming and early Qing dynasties, red sandalwood was used for processing. There are very few large pieces of red sandalwood furniture, and the wood is generally no more than eight inches wide. The wood material is good, and there are few carvings, so inlays are not used. According to experts, there are more than a dozen species of red sandalwood, and their prices vary greatly according to different materials. The most expensive one is Venus red sandalwood. After the mid-Qing Dynasty, wenge, rosewood, ironwood, rosewood, etc. were gradually used, while the new furniture mostly used rosewood and mahogany as materials. Rosewood furniture has many large pieces and many carving patterns, such as inlaid jade and teeth, stone, wood, snails, cloisonne and so on. Rosewood furniture is also more carved, more inlaid, and more modern products. The styles of furniture in the Ming and early Qing dynasties were varied and often changed. In the Ming Dynasty, the shape of the armchair, the official hat chair, the round corner cabinet, and the large painting case were designed. On the basis of the continuation of the Ming furniture style, the Qing Dynasty also designed unique furniture, such as mahogany Fushou Ruyi Taishi Chair, Hyun Qin Case, Red Sandalwood Stool, Nail Embroidered Pier and other furniture. In addition, it can also be judged from the selection of materials, stitching, carving, inlay and other decorative techniques. In Ming Dynasty, a large number of hardwoods are used to make furniture, which makes full use of its beautiful patterns. In many furniture treasures, you can see that the best materials are usually used in the most prominent parts of the furniture, such as the face core board, door core board, drawer face and backrest board, etc., which are all made of beautiful materials to achieve decorative effects. Classical furniture uses raw lacquer and hot wax. It is advisable to use bee wax containing 95% wax, and then polish it to make the surface of the furniture bright and clean, and the edges and corners smooth. The carving craftsmanship is excellent, creative, and the stone has an abstract style, the lines are elegant, dry enough, and not afraid of cracking. Modern imitation furniture from the Ming and Qing Dynasties is mostly replaced by paint, with saw marks on the joints, mass production, new stones, complicated lines, easy to crack and deform, and glued with nails and glue. The ancient furniture of the Ming and Qing dynasties is very heavy, while the new furniture is lighter.
