Vintage Chinese Sideboard from Gansu

This rustic vintage cabinet was made in Gansu Province in Northern China and dates from around 1920. It has recently been lightly restored in an artisan workshop in the Beijing area and has two doors and one removable inner shelf. The red on the front and the top look vibrant against the dark brown of the varnished wood sides of the cabinet. The doors are framed along the top and sides with a carved border with traces of green paint still showing. The green is also used on the narrow apron beneath the and the front is overall richly decorated with painted floral motifs. The gloss finish has been renewed to preserve the paint decoration.

Materials: pine with brass fittings
