This vintage cabinet comes from Shanxi Province in Northern China and dates from the 1920s. The four door panels are decorated with faded paintings of flowers including peonies, traditional symbols of status and wealth, and lotus, traditionally associated with purity, against a yellow background. These are framed with a highly distressed green paint, which also continues on the side panels, top and apron. Below the bottom rail of the front are four small cloud motif carved scrolls. It has recently been reconditioned in an artisan workshop in Beijing and has been fitted with one removable inner shelf.
Dimensions: 176(w) x 45(d) x 84(h) cm
