EDEN Fine Antiques Galleries is honored and proud to offer General Chen Qi's heirloom collections.http://chen-qi.net/https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chen_Qi_(collector)Dimension(stand and pole): 97" H x 17-1/2" W (each) (Lanterns): 33-1/2" H x 15-3/4" W (each) LOT NOTES:: In the Tang dynasty (618-907), Chinese lacquer-ware saw a new style marked by the use of sheets of gold or silver made in various shapes, such as birds, animals, and flowers. The cut-outs were affixed onto the surface of the lacquer-ware, after which new layers of lacquer were applied, dried, and then ground away, so the surface could be polished to reveal the golden or silvery patterns beneath. This was done by a technique known as pingtuo. Such techniques were time-consuming and costly, but these lacquer-wares were considered highly refined. It was also the period when the earliest practice of carving lacquer-ware began.The art of inlaid gold, silver, and mother-of-pearl continued from the Tang into the Song dynasty. Several existing decorative techniques gradually developed further after the 10th century, such as qiangjin (engraving filled in with gold), diaotian or tianqi (inlaid with lacquer of a different color), and diaoqi (carved lacquer. Especially the art of inlaying lacquer with mother-of-pearl was intensively developed during the Song dynasty (960-1279). However, during the Song, the artistic craft also made use of inlaid gold in a process of which is to engrave intricate patterns in the lacquer surface and to fill the intaglio with gold powder.The knowledge of the Chinese methods of the lacquer process spread from China during the Han, Tang and Song dynasties, eventually it was introduced to Korea, Japan, Southeast and South Asia.Läs mer
A Sunburst Carved Rosewood Indian Colonial Secretary, c.1840
This secretary is crafted from rich, dense rosewood exhibiting the fluted sunburst motif and gadrooned edging. The carving in the upper case is of the finest quality. Note the very deep and detailed vine motif surrounding the glazed openings, which are banded in brass, and the cornice moulding, which is a standout and fully developed. When closed, this secretary is quite striking with all the sunburst panels which retain all of the original brass. The interior writing surface also retains its original velvet which can be changed if so desired. This piece is in pristine condition with no repairs or alterations. It even retains its original wavy glass. A special mention should be made of the hidden drawers, two of which are hidden behind panels flanking the central prospect door. A secret sliding panel unlocks the drawers, which can be pulled out after the central slide drawer is removed. As an aside, this secretary relates to the grouping of Eastern Colonial Furniture on exhibit at the Boston MFA in Made in the Americas: The New World Discovers Asia. We feel these pieces, over time, will greatly appreciate in value, as things of Eastern Origin become of greater importance in the developing countries, China notwithstanding. Historically, these pieces were created in the old port cities along the pacific rim, down through India. Height: 77 1/4 in. Width: 43 1/4 in. Depth: 18 in.

Baule, Ivory Coast: a very old game board for the popular game of ‘mancala’.
‘Mancala’ is a game for two players, which is widespread through all of Africa and in large areas of Asia. It is a counting and capturing game and comes originally from Ancient Egypt and Rome. It is known in Africa under a variety of names (‘mancala’, ‘awele’, ‘owari’, ‘makpon’, ‘serata’ etc.). ‘Mancala’ can be played in simple, round depressions in the ground, or with such finely executed game boards such as the present example. Two players sit opposite each other on the long sides of the mancala board, and fill ‘their’ holes with playing stones (stones, nuts, seeds, or similar). Then the fields of the opponent must be jumped over with one’s own playing stones. The gaming stones of the opponent which have been jumped over may be removed. The one who has taken all the opponent’s stones is the winner. The present mancala game board is carved of hard, light-coloured wood and has twelve game holes, six on each side, as well as fine, geometric reliefs on the long sides. On each narrow end is a pot for the captured gaming stones of the opponent, carved into rounded projections. Made from a single piece of wood. On the upper surface the object is embellished with metal strips (aluminium and brass), as well as with decorative nails. A small, old break can be seen on the upper edge of one of the side ‘pots’. Otherwise no damage. A special feature of this piece is its apparent age: it displays an excellent patina on the surfaces, and all edges are round and ‘softly’ worn, due to the many years of use of this mancala game board. Height: 16 cm; length: 65 cm; width: 17 cm. First half of the 20th century. (ME) Provenance: German private collection.

Dimensions: Height: 19” by 19” Wide Condition: Very good condition which is estimated to be around 60-70 years old. Some information on the Turkmen culture and people The Turkmen people have traditionally been nomads and equestrians, and even today after the fall of the USSR attempts to urbanize the Turkmen have not been very successful. They never really formed a coherent nation or ethnic group until they were forged into one by Joseph Stalin in the 1930's. Rather they are divided into clans, and each clan has its own dialect and style of dress. Turkmen are famous for making Turkmen rugs, often mistakenly called Bukhara rugs in the West. These are elaborate and colorful rugs, and these too help indicate the distinction between the various Turkmen clans. The Turkmen are Sunni Muslims but they, like most of the region's nomads, adhere to Islam rather loosely and combine Islam with pre-Islamic animist spirituality. The Turkmen do indeed tend to be spiritual but are by no means militantly religious. A Turkmen can be identified anywhere by the traditional "telpek" hats, which are large black sheepskin hats that resemble afros. The national dress: men wear high, shaggy sheepskin hats and red robes over white shirts. Women wear long sack-dresses over narrow trousers (the pants are trimmed with a band of embroidery at the ankle). Female headdresses usually consist of silver jewelry. Bracelets and brooches are set with semi-precious stones. Language: Outside the capital, the national language of Turkmen is the most widely encountered. In Ashgabat, it would be hard to find a person who did not speak Russian, however with recent efforts to revive the ancient culture of Turkmenistan, Turkmen is quickly regaining its place as the chief language of the state. Two significant figures in Turkmen literature are the poets Magtymguly Pyragy and Mämmetweli Kemine. Turkmen music is very similar to Khorasani music.( Source Wikipedia) ----------- Some information on the Evil Eye Follows: ----------- The evil eye is a curse believed to be cast by a malevolent glare, usually given to a person when they are unaware. Many cultures believe that receiving the evil eye will cause misfortune or injury.Talismans created to protect against the evil eye are also frequently called "evil eyes". The idea expressed by the term causes many different cultures to pursue protective measures against it. The concept and its significance vary widely among different cultures, primarily in West Asia. The idea appears several times in translations of the Old Testament. It was a widely extended belief among many Mediterranean and Asian tribes and cultures. Charms and decorations with eye-like symbols known as nazars, which are used to repel the evil eye are a common sight across Turkey, Greece, Albania, Egypt, Iran, Israel, Southern Italy (Naples), the Levant, and Afghanistan and have become a popular choice of souvenir with tourists.
