Crimped Floral Arrangement in Acrylic

Art

This item has already been SOLD!

Description

This substantial scroll paperweight dates to the 20th century, created by an unidentified Chinese artist. It measures 11" x 6" x 2". It is in excellent condition.

This piece is a beautiful example of art and function in harmony. The painstaking arrangement of hand-cut flowers encased in clear acrylic functions as a 20th-century version of ancient traditional Chinese scroll weights. To prevent the curling of silk scrolls when being read or viewed, the weight would hold the scrolls edge in place. As a modern piece, this piece can be used in many ways, such as a paperweight, or simply for the aesthetic pleasure derived from its artistic beauty.

Donated by Ephrem Lai.
