Vintage Poplar Cabinet from Gansu with Lotus Motif

This vintage cabinet comes from Gansu Province in Northern China and dates from the 1960s. Typically of this region, the two door panels are painted with a scene showing peonies on a yellow and green background, bordered with a deep red. Peonies are traditional auspicious symbols for status and wealth. The structural framing at the front and the top have a distressed black paint finish with areas of the poplar wood showing through. The sides are unpainted, though sealed with a gloss finish. It has recently been reconditioned in an artisan workshop in Beijing and has been fitted with one removable inner shelf.

Dimensions: 100(w) x 39(d) x 89(h) cm
