I'm told these are Chinese Teakwood. Got them from an estate and am trying to sell, but don't know what I have. Any ideas?

YOU need to look at the carving with magnification for knife or chisel marks.  Your pics are nice and focused but do not provide sufficient power to see the grain.  The wood appears to be teak, but there are other woods of that color and without a hands-on exam it's difficult to say.

IMHO I would guess that the design was computer generated and laser cut. That takes special equipment and training to use and the designs are beautiful, but can be done in just a few hours.

Look closely too at the wood. Artisans use plywood and veneers to obtain multi-colored three dimensional appearances.
