Vintage Pale Green Sideboard from Gansu

This vintage sideboard comes from Gansu Province in Northern China and dates from the 1910s. The two doors open onto a single storage compartment that has been fitted with a single removable shelf. The door panels are painted with a scene showing peonies on a yellow background, bordered with a pale and distressed green that also covers the backs and top of the piece. Peonies are traditional auspicious symbols for status and wealth. It has recently been reconditioned in an artisan workshop in Beijing.
