MUSHROOM -- RUYI

In Chinese culture the mushroom is considered to be a symbol of longevity or immortality as the dried mushroom can last for a long period of time without spoiling. The mushroom also has many medicinal properties so it can help facilitate a long life. The magical Mushroom symbol also known as the Ruyi or the sacred fungus lingzhi is very common as a decorative element on Antique Chinese Furniture and is thought to be able to fulfill wishes.

SCROLLING CLOUDS

The repetitive scrolling cloud motif is probably the most common carved decorative accent in Antique Chinese Furniture. This pretty carved flourish often found on aprons and spandrels is meant to convey good fortune.
