This book cabinet was likely originally commissioned for a scholar's study to store important texts. The quality and craftsmanship is clear in the bold lines, elegant hardware, and traditional mortise and tenon joinery. But, the exquisitely carved details set this piece apart. Look closely at the ornate trim of the upper compartment and you’ll notice three bats—symbols of happiness and joy—set against a background of clouds.
