This charming cabinet-on-stand dates to the early 20th century and is decorated in the Chinoiserie style with a gilt and polychromed finish. The upper cabinet is decorated to resemble Chinese lacquer cabinetry, the doors and sides embellished with idyllic mountain-and-water landscapes and the drawers with birds and floral sprays. The lacquer has been sculpted to achieve subtle three-dimensionality and is painted in a neutral palette of crème and brown with gilt accents.

Commonly used as bar or drinks chest, the cabinet has ample storage with five front-facing drawers, a side drawer on the table base, and a large interior compartment with a red lacquer interior. Brass drop pulls adorn each drawer and double as removable keys on each of the doors.

The chest sits on an elegant table stand with a waisted apron and thin cabriole legs. The stand has a polychromed gesso finish decorated in low relief with shields, acanthus leaves and botanical scrollwork. The original gilding has faded with time to a subdued, dark brown color with traces of gold.

Minor losses to finish throughout. Subtle crazing to polychrome finish on upper cabinet.
