How to identify Chinese antique furniture--Huanghuli wood

Thanks for the source from

Background of Huanghuli wood:
The Chinese term huanghuali literally means "yellow flowering pear" wood. It is a member of the rosewood family and is botanically classified as Dalbergia odorifera. In pre-modern times the wood was known as huali or hualu. The modifier huang(yellowish-brown) was added in the early twentieth century to describe old huali wood whose surfaces had mellowed to a yellowish tone due to long exposure to light.

The most qualified huanghuli furniture was made during Mid Ming dynasty and late Qianlong Emperor of Qing dynasty. Since mid Qing dynast, the materials of huanghuali became less and less to almost dispear. So the furniture made of huanghuali was not produced any more. Till now few huanghuali furniture left. It's the most precious and expensive member of furniture family at present.

Huanghuali furniture can usually be classified as Beds; tables; chairs.
Beds: frame bed, babu bed, arhat bed
Tables: square table, strip table
Chairs: folder chair, cap chair, hanging chair, round chair.

Beds classified:
There are three kinds of beds: frame bed, bubu bed and arhat bed.
They can be sold at 20 to 40 hundred thousand USD or higher per piece in the internationl market.

This piece is an imitation.
There is no natual old evidence nor a thin sheet of film. So we can know that it was made in late time or present replicas.
