A three-panel Chinese fretwork mirror, featuring two fan shaped panels, from the 1800s. This Chinese 19th century fretwork panel was made with elmwood and fan shaped mirrors. The large panel showcases an intricate traditional Chinese geometrical fretwork motif covered with a lacquer patina. Three inset mirrors adorn it, a circular one surrounded by two fan shaped ones reminding one of the Chinese court fan tradition. This mirrored panel can be hung thanks to two decorative hardware buckles featuring a three circles pattern.


This decorative Chinese 1800s elmwood fretwork panel with fan shaped mirror would be an exotic and elegant item in most homes, perhaps in a living room above a sofa, in a bedroom above a bed, or in a hallway above an entry table.
