Subject:Table and screen question
Posted By: Justin Sun, Sep 10, 2017 IP: 100.0.76.125

My family inherited these pieces ( there's actually a couple more pieces but I don't have pictures of them on hand) and I can't find about them. They came from a family members who's family originated in Shanghai. They are both made from heavy dense woods.

They both have dragons carved on them. The screen has some sort of inlay at the top.

There are no markings on them.

they both appear to be early 20th century and made of blackwood. blackwood is Dalbergia melanoxylon, an African hardwood, and important commercial species that has been imported to China and used in furniture since the 1820's

Thank you for responding. Here are a couple of other pieces. Any info would help. Other than what you told me, I am not finding any info online.
