For nearly a thousand years, traditional Chinese architecture had no interior closets, so tall cabinets were the place to store books, clothing, antiques, food and everything else in a household. The doors of round-cornered cabinets, like this one, were designed with extended dowels at the top and bottom that ingeniously fit into the upper and lower frames, freeing the cabinet of the need for surface mounted hinges. The interior of this cabinet maintains its original compartments. The removable center rod between the doors provided a firm point for a lock to be attached to keep doors neatly shut and contents secure.
