The Golden Palace


This fine inside painted snuff bottle depicts Puyi receiving a servant in his golden palace. A pair of cranes appears beside the throne. Cranes became a standard decoration for Qing dynasty rooms in the Forbidden City of Beijing. They act as candle stands, but mainly they convey a wish for the emperor to live long. The artist, Zheng Shikui, is a pupil of Master painter Wang Xisan. He was born in 1951 in Hengshui and was a Ji school student.
