Footnotes

  • Provenance: an English private collection, purchased circa 1975-1980.
    With Hugh Moss, London

    The carving on the apron is comparable to chilong decorated examples attributed to the late 16th to early 17th century, such as the one illustrated by G. Wu Bruce, Living in the Ming - the Lu Ming Shi Collection, Hong Kong, 2000, pls.24 and 39; the hoof shaped feet are similar to those on a couch bed, ibid., pl.53.
