About this item

This beautiful sideboard is finished in a dark lacquer with a contrasting bright red lacquer on the three doors. There is a simple carved decoration on the aprons and on the framework around each door. The paintings are in blues, greens and whites and show a symmetrical, floral pattern often seen on cabinets like this from Gansu. Originally used to store grain, when it was produced the cabinet would have had three fixed panels in the front, with the inside accessed by removing a wooden board in the top. The panels have been converted into doors and a single removable shelf added inside each section, making it ideal today as a sideboard.
