    清末民初 紅木嵌螺鈿段泥刻伯樂相馬圖大插屏

    「伯樂相馬,筠如□人畫,陳鴻圖刻」
    「咽三」
    「栢壽」

    插屏四邊攢紅木框及木座,上以螺鈿嵌飾竹石花蝶,底座一面嵌八仙過海圖,插屏中間嵌紫砂屏板,段泥泥質,其中一面刻伯樂相馬圖並以彩飾,屏左下角鈐一「栢壽」篆文印,另一面仿石刻刻詩文題字。

    屏背面所刻系仿「朱君長殘碑」所作,亦稱「朱君長題字」。西漢刻石。寬82釐米,高77釐米。早年殘損,僅存「朱君長」三字。清乾隆五十七年(1792年)四月,錢塘黃易得于濟寧兩城山(現屬微山縣)下,審為漢刻,移置州學明倫堂。移置時,旁刻翁方綱、錢梅溪、黃易、李克正等題記。乾隆六十年(1795年)阮元按試過此,細審後雲:"石面多樵斧痕,其制頗類曲阜墳壇二刻"。該石碑目前藏濟寧市博物館漢碑室。另一部分系雲峰山摩崖石刻中之「右闕題字」,傳為北魏鄭道昭所書,字勢跌宕,氣勢開張。
