Description

A Chinese sculpture of polished pink jade blossom and carved green jade leaves modelled as a cherry tree.
In China, the blossoming cherry tree has strong symbolic meaning, representing feminine beauty, dominance and love. Similarly, in Japan, the cherry tree known as Sakura, also has strong symbolic meaning. In the short blossom period festivals are held under the falling trees and it is believed that every falling blossom is a metaphor of a fallen warrior.
Whether you are a collector or a first-time buyer the choice of pieces will inspire. Each has been carefully selected for its exceptional design and provenance, as well as in many instances its academic significance.
Originality and authenticity are paramount; and using our extensive knowledge and experience in furniture conservation and restoration we can ensure that our clients can buy with absolute confidence.
