From Our Website

These are some pictures Bill took at our warehouse complex outside of Beijing. Some of you may recognize a piece you bought from us and have placed in your home. This is the way the furniture looks in its rough state, before any cleaning or repair has been done. Under each rough photo I have placed a photo of the same (or very similar) piece after restoration. The top piece on the stack above is a hand painted poplar trunk from Qinghai province, which is north and east of Tibet. The area is mostly populated by nomadic peoples and their influence can be seen in the imagery and color choices made by the painter.
