About this item

This beautiful bookshelf comes from Shanxi province in north central China, circa 1850 and is made from elm wood and remains in its original condition.

The dark lacquer has worn over the years and reveals the paler wood beneath in some places, adding charm and character to this delightful storage shelf.

The shelves are proportioned well to accommodate a modern western home as some old Chinese bookshelves are much deeper as books tended to be stacked lengthwise and on top of each other with the spines facing out. There are also four useful drawers at the bottom dressed with original ring hardware.

This piece would make a great display cabinet in a dining or living room or use in a home office to store books and files.
