Likely to have been the centerpiece of a wealthy gentleman’s home, this pair of Qing-dynasty compound cabinets are actually comprised of two stacked storage compartments. The upper compartment was traditionally used for hats or out of-season clothes while the lower compartment stored everyday garments. At the base of the lower cabinet is a concealed opening that would have held blankets and other bedding. The center rail was designed to be removable for easier access. Constructed over a century ago, the cabinets are wonderfully preserved, exhibiting rich, lustrous wood and handcrafted brass hardware. The cabinet aprons are carved with fu characters flanked by a pair of dragons' heads, denoting power and prosperity.
