Characterized by a range of exquisite textures and styles, furniture from the Qing Dynasty (1644-1911) occupies an important place among the Chinese creations in the industry and has high value for collection.
The craft emerged in the early period of the dynasty during the reign of Emperor Kangxi and developed during the reign of Emperor Yongzheng and the subsequent 200 years. During the reign of Emperor Daoguang, the Opium War deeply influenced the development of the Qing-style furniture, bringing in characteristics of Western architecture and furniture.
Themed "Art Revisited, Beauty Revealed," an antique Chinese furniture exhibition has kicked off in Shenyang Imperial Palace, and over 100 finest pieces are on display. Join CGTN and watch the exhibition live!
