This stunning vintage cabinet comes from Tibet and dates from the 1970s. It has recently been reconditioned in an artisan workshop in Beijing with a natural look wood finish, and some distressed effects. The front of the piece features 6 highly decorative panels containing ornate floral artwork. Each panel depicts stunning jade coloured foliage with five lotus flowers, one of Buddhism’s most significant symbols. It is a symbol of blessings, enlightenment, and mental purity. The lotus has its roots in mud, but blossoms into a beautiful flower.
Overall, the artwork and vintage colouring of this piece give it an Arts & Crafts style. Throughout the mainframe subtle floral scrolling has been applied, accenting the colours in the main panels. Then again, a larger scroll on the apron at the bottom of the piece.
This stand-out cabinet has acres of storage space accessed through two sets of doors. Its ample proportions mean it works well in a number of spaces: as an entrance/office console, linen closet, or kitchen/dining room storage.
Dimensions: 120(w) 40(d) 100(h) cm
