About this item

This beautifully decorated side cabinet is from the north central Chinese province of Shaanxi, circa 1850. This is very much a unique cabinet in a highly original condition.

The style of the cabinet, with panels and doors that are set in rounded frames and heavy relief carving on the upper drawer, are all distinctive characteristics of furniture from this region, however the various paintings on the doors and front panels make it this piece more unusual. The two lower panels are decorated with flowers, whilst the doors and panels at either side show a number of interesting looking figures in hats and robes. The two central characters facing each other are red lipped and shaven headed, whilst the four smaller surrounding figures appear to be watching them.

The lacquer and paintings have cracked and worn overtime but the beautiful paintings are still fairly clear adding intrigue and interest to this delightful cabinet. The red lacquer on the top extended surface is particularly worn, the natural elm wood showing through the layers of lacquer.

Make this a statement piece in a hallway, reception room or living area in a modern home.
