Large Vintage Grey Sideboard with Faded Painting from Gansu

This large vintage sideboard comes from Gansu Province in Northern China and dates from about 1900. The doors retain handpainted faded images of peonies, lotus flowers and a simple landscape. The depiction of these flowers symbolises female beauty, wealth, honour then purity, long life and honour respectivly. The paintings are bordered with a distressed grey that also covers the backs and top of the piece.

The simple yet decorative design of this cabinet makes it a great choice for an entranceway. Its storage space and understated colours also work well in a bedroom, office or hallway.
