Vintage Orange Red Cabinet from Dongbei with Peony Motif

This product is not currently on display in our Shop.  It will be available for delivery in 2-3 weeks time. Please email if you have any questions. 

This stunning vintage cabinet comes from Dongbei Province in Northern China and dates from around 1920. It has recently been reconditioned in an artisan workshop in Beijing, where it was repainted in this stunning burnt orange red. This item has four main doors that open onto a large storage area. Unusually it also has three good-sized drawers beneath the main space. 

All of the doors and drawers retain original floral artwork featuring peonies in wonderful detail, symbolising wealth, high social standing and feminine beauty and conjugal bliss.  

The warm orange red tones have been rubbed back to show areas of the dark undercoat and the original wood beneath. A removable shelf has been made to provide flexibility in how you can use the main storage compartment. The simple shape and muted colour make this a great piece for fitting into a wide range of decorative schemes, both contemporary and period.

Dimensions: 159(w) x 40(d) x 91(h) cm

Materials: pine with brass fittings
