RARE AND MAGNIFICENT HUANGHUALI 'DRAGON' LUOHAN BED , LUOHANCHUANG 17TH CENTURY (LATE MING /EARLY QING DYNASTY)

Lot 8: RARE AND MAGNIFICENT HUANGHUALI 'DRAGON' LUOHAN BED , LUOHANCHUANG 17TH CENTURY (LATE MING /EARLY QING DYNASTY)

Estimated Price: Log in or create account to view price data

Description: RARE AND MAGNIFICENT HUANGHUALI 'DRAGON' LUOHAN BED , LUOHANCHUANG 17TH CENTURY (LATE MING /EARLY QING DYNASTY) The powerfully proportioned bed with rectangular frame enclosing a soft-mat seat supported by four curved under base transverse braces and with 'ice-plate' edge above a narrow waist and cusped apron, supported on bold cabriole-shaped legs terminating in carved scroll, each bread-board edge solid railing and apron carved with magnificent confronting dragons among intertwined scrolling vines, the wood of rich colour and finely figured grain, the seat-mat and webbing later replacement 77 cm H x 197 cm W x 100 cm D This Luohanchuang is constructed using complex compound mortise and tenon joints, without glue or nails and can be dismantled easily into twelve separate components For similar examples, refer to The Dr. S.Y. Yip collection of Classic Chinese Furniture, catalogue by Grace Wu Bruce, pp. 128-129 and Essence of Style: Chinese Furniture of the Late Ming and Early Qing Dynasties, Mimi and Raymond Hung Collection, by Robert Hatfield Ellsworth et al, pp 54-55 Literature Sarah Handler, "Comfort and Joy: A Couch Bed for Day and Night" Journal of the Classical Chinese Furniture Society (JCCFS), Winter 1991, pp. 4-19 for a discussion on the history and uses of the Luohanchuang Wang Shixiang, "Classic Chinese Furniture, Ming and Early Qing Dynasties" pp.183-185 for other examples Auctioneer's comments The influence and adaptability of the Luohanchuang, used by scholars and the elite since the Ming Dynasty (1368-1644) as the centrepiece in any interior setting, can still be seen today. As commented by Sarah Handler in her article mentioned above, the Chinese "couch-bed" is "more ingenious and beautiful than any equivalent in the West" (JCCFS, Winter 1991, p. 3). Designers seeking to combine traditional Chinese culture with contemporary living have adapted different uses for the Luohan couch-bed. Decked with soft furnishings, it replaces the three seater couch in the living room or function as a chaise longue / day bed for the bedroom and study (refer to accompanying illustrations). The simple and classic design of the Luohanchuang, comprising an elevated platform with a three-sided panelled railing, has endured the centuries to remain a relevant centrepiece in the modern home.
