19th Century Chinese Bamboo Scholar Carving
A fine 19th century Chinese bamboo carving, fashioned into a mountainous hillside, with several figures in scholarly pursuits. The overall surface patina suggests consistent handling and has developed into a polished tone. Three pairs of figures rest, with one pair examining a scroll. Natural age splits have developed on the mountainside to reverse. The carving rests on a custom rosewood stand.
