About this item

This stunning red lacquer cabinet is from Shanxi province in central China and was made during the mid 1800's in a style distinctive of Shanxi furniture with an extended lid and panels set back within the frame.

It still has its original finish and wonderful old paintings that were once overlaid with a bright gold leaf in a technique know in Chinese as 'miao jin'. Over time the gold has worn away, leaving the darker base paintings underneath. These depict a simple landscape and scenes of figures on foot and on horseback and the three panels below the doors are similarly decorated with floral paintings. The original hardware has been replaced with simple rings and there is a single removable shelf inside.

Make this a beautiful statement piece in a living room, reception room or bedroom.
