About this item

This stunning cabinet in a rich, deep red lacquer finish is beautifully decorated with hand painted butterflies.

The gold decoration know as 'miao jin' has worn in some areas revealing the black base and outlines of some butterflies, creating a wonderful contrast and aged appearance. For the Chinese the butterfly is a symbol of joy and marital happiness and is often found on furniture, particularly from the Shanxi province, such a this wonderful piece.

The hardware is old, keeping the charachter and charm intact and there is a removable shelf inside, providing useful storage.

Today this delightful cabinet makes a lovely accent piece for a bedroom, living room or reception area.
