A beautiful pair of carvings (in elm) of interior scenes with human subjects.

The iconography is unknown to us, but the work is excellent, and the presentation – in silk mats and frames with brass fittings - is quite striking.

Unsigned. The frame was made by Wah Cheong; (Hong Kong, early 20th century)

Sight dimensions: 3-1/2“ X 5-1/2“; Frame dimensions: 8“ X 10“
