New Auction Window: The Carving Block

The stately carved dragon chair and surrounding 1940s bark cloth curtain panels set the stage for this trove of ornately carved treasures. Inside you'll find a wooden box, striking red vase, and several traditional theater masks, including the Korean "Mokjeong" disguise. 

Be sure not to overlook the jewel tone pendant lamp (shown above) or set of printing blockstwo of our favorite items. 

On the other hand, this framed calligraphy by Wu Changshuo is lovely as well.

Auction ends Tuesday, May 31 at 8pm. Bids may be placed in person or by phone (212-871-0777) on the auction clipboard near the register.

Happy bidding!
