â€œThe price of Jinsi Nan is higher than that of gold, and the most expensive table reaches 300 million yuan.â€ â€œIn the Qianlong period of the Qing Dynasty, the value of 1 gram of gold is equal to 10 grams of gold.â€ â€œThe Qing Dynastyâ€™s powers and shackles are made of nanmu. The house was only given the death of the Jiaqing Emperor...
Since 2011, all kinds of arguments about the investment and collection value of Jinsi Nan have been very rampant. Jin Si Nan is both "precious" and "scarce", and has greatly replaced the red sandalwood and huanghuali and became the king of famous wood. In the face of this sudden Jinsi Nan boom, are the concepts around Jin Sinan true and reliable?
Wood, far less expensive than gold
Classical furniture collector Wang Shizhen's "Ming-style furniture research" divides furniture wood into two categories. The first type of hard wood includes six kinds of red sandalwood, rosewood, rosewood, and the second type of non-hard wood, which is eucalyptus and nanmu. More than ten kinds of birch, pine, pine, etc., Nanmu is often used as construction and furniture materials, there are Yanan and Zinan, Zi Nan is an alias of Jinnan.
According to the introduction of the China Furniture Association, Jinshen is classified as the genus Phoebe in the wood standard. There are 94 species in the world, and there are 34 species in China. The regions of growth and distribution are almost all over the southern provinces. Unlike the rare hardwoods such as huanghuali and red sandalwood, which are hundreds of years old, Nanmu can only be used in natural and wild forests for more than 60 years, while artificially planted forests take only about 30 years to form. Because the growth cycle of P. sylvestris is relatively short and the growth is rapid in the later stage, there are many large-scale forest farms in the south of China. In the history, Nanmu is widely used as a house, a temple, and a coffin. Therefore, the old materials are also abundant in the folk.
Wu Bingliang, chairman of the traditional furniture professional committee of China Furniture Association, said: "The price of nanmu has been relatively stable and the supply of resources is relatively sufficient. The price of wood in the near future is the price of 70,000-80,000 yuan per ton of the old material. The price is 30,000-50,000 yuan per ton, and the general grade price is 10,000-20,000 yuan per ton. At present, the best quality Jinshen Yin-sinking wood, the price is about 100,000 yuan per ton."
At the end of 2011, Guardian Autumn Auction held a special edition of classical furniture, which was recognized as the â€œQinglonglong Red Sandalwood Carvings of the Qing Dynastyâ€, which was sold for 57.5 million yuan. Deng Xuesong, deputy secretary-general of the Traditional Furniture Committee of the China Furniture Association, believes that the cultural value and artistic value of classical furniture are recognized in the world, but so far there has not been a case of a classical furniture auction of over 100 million yuan. As far as the current market is concerned, the saying that "a piece of Jinsi Nan table is worth 300 million" is a man-made exaggeration of furniture crafts and materials, which is nonsense. The so-called "1 gram of Nansi in the Qing dynasty, the value of 1 gram of Nanmu is equal to 10 grams of gold" is even less credible. At that time, "woodwood" such as nanmu was generally not sold by weight, and the weight unit of the Qing Dynasty was not gram. The concept of price, there is no source at all. Use is not exclusive to the royal family.
According to the "History of the Qing Dynasty", the Emperor Jiaqing of the Qing Dynasty declared 20 counts of the powers of the courtiers and the sins. The 13th article was "the property of the banknotes, and the house of Nanmu was over-extended. It was modeled after the Ningshou Palace system, and the garden was dotted with the Yuanmingyuan Peng Island. Yaotai is no different." Then, in the Qing Dynasty, Jin Shinan was â€œexclusively enjoyed by the emperor, and the use of folks would lead to the scourge of killing himselfâ€. Cao Jinglou, director of the Wenbao Science and Technology Department of the Forbidden City Museum, said: â€œThe 13th guilt of Heyi is not because of Nanmu built a house, but his house layout and decoration were modeled after the royal family and the Yueyue system. In history, Jinshen is mainly used for construction materials. In the existing Ming Dynasty architecture, the Qinâ€™an Palace and the Ming Tombs Hall of the Forbidden City are used. It is also widely used in window sashes, partitions, wall panels and lacquered wood furniture of ancient buildings. In addition, because of its anti-corrosion advantages, Nanmu is also the preferred material for oysters, and has the reputation of 'king of the king of life'. In Gansu and Hubei. In Sichuan, Sichuan, and other places, there are many nanmu components in temples, ancestral halls, and folk houses. As for the use of nanmu, there are more. In ancient times, there is no record of using Jinshen as a special stone for the palace, which the public can't use."
