  • Furniture of the Ming and Qing Dynasties...The development of traditional Chinese furniture reached its zenith during the Ming (1368-1644) and Qing (1644-1911) dynasties. Furniture in the Ming style combines simple, unvarnished design with precise, scientific framework, while the Qing furniture features exquisite carvings, diverse designs, and various decorative elements. Tables, made with excellent craftsmanship, compose an important part of the Ming and Qing furniture. Straight-end table for Chinese painting and calligraphy (pingtouhua'an) usually features a large rectangular surface wide enough to hold "treasures of the study" like the brush, the ink, the paper and the inkstone. Square table (fangzhuo), as its name suggests, is a framework with a square surface. Besides a diversity of designs, this type also varies in size – some large enough to seat eight adults and thus known as Great Baxianzhuo (literally "table for eight immortals") while smaller ones called Lesser Baxianzhuo.

  • Good Fortune, Wealth, Longevity and Happ...

    "Fu," the Chinese word for "good fortune" or "blessing," was coined to imply good luck and long life. According to the ancient Chinese classic Shangshu (Book of History), there are "Five Blessings," which refer to longevity, wealth, health, virtue, and the luck to die a natural death in old age.

    "Lu," the Chinese word for "wealth," originally meant the reward received. During the Shang and Zhou dynasties (some 3,000 years ago), people considered a promotion in official rank as "Fu," and regarded an award from the monarch as "Lu."

    "Shou," the Chinese word for "longevity," implies old age and prolonged life. Since it ranks first among the "Five Blessings," longevity is also considered good fortune.

    "Xi," the Chinese word for "happiness" or "joy," refers to delightful feelings or cheerful things. As early as thousands of years ago, the character already appeared in such classics as The Book of Songs and Rituals of Zhou.
