Purchased in Hong Kong approximately 1950 – a Chinese Lacquer Cabinet, on a richly luxurious Gilt ground.
It has a beautiful illustrative quality, almost lino or wood cut style, it really is a stunning piece that is as contemporary as it is classic. It would fit into an Antique style home, a Victorian or it would sit just as well in a contemporary home. Fabulous storage or a wonderful drinks cabinet.
There are 2 cupboard doors that open up to make an indoor space that measures 82cm (H) x 89cm (W). This is divided by a shelf half way up. These cupboards sit above two small drawers at the base. The interior is the stereo typical red lacquer, gorgeous!!
Even the hinges and the brackets are intricately etched with patterns and animals
I love this cabinet, it's warm, rich and characterful. An absolute enrichment to any room. In fact it is a timeless piece of art - which I don't think you could tire of looking at. And it's useful!!! What more could anyone need...?
