Qing Dynasty Wooden Letter-rack | China, 20C


A wooden letter-rack presumably made and used around the end of the Qing dynasty in early 20 century. It might be used as chopstick holder or kitchenware box but considering the size and details, it must be a letter-rack.

There are three holes, A hole on the top is broken, because it has been used by hanging on the wall for many years. The other holes on the left and right could be to keep it in place after the breakage.

The carving in the front is probably a portrait of emperor in ancient mythology but it is blackened and damaged, that remains in the a spiritual feeling. A node between the faith of Chinese empiror and modernization.
