About this item

We are delighted to offer for sale this stunning 19th century Tibetan hand paint alter cabinet depicting birds and flowers.

These cabinets are constructed from cedar or pine and decorated in the traditional Tibetan colors. They were often used as family altars & were used to store religious scrolls, silk ceremonial clothes, family jewelry and yak butter used in lamps.
Original antique Tibetan cabinets are now very rare, the way you can tell the originals is the timber is all hand-carved, you can see the grain variations, the timber is invariable warped or curved on top from decades of use, the painting is all done by hand, it's not transfer printed
We have lightly cleaned waxed and polished this from top to bottom

Please view the very detailed pictures as they form part of the description around condition
Please also ask any questions before you buy and not after, all of our items are sold as seen and as listed
Please note vintage period and original items such as leather seating will always have natural patina in the form of cracking creasing and wear, we recommend regular waxing to ensure no moisture is lost, also hand-dyed leather is not recommended to sit in direct sunlight for prolonged periods of time as it will dry out and fade
