The essence of traditional Chinese furniture is fully expressed in the simplicity and graceful presence of this 18th-century two door cabinet. Crafted of southern elmwood with traditional joinery techniques, the tall cabinet is gently tapered, with round legs and austere doors spanning from top to bottom. Given the harsh conditions that furniture had been subjected to in the past two centuries of China's history, it's rare to find a cabinet with original lacquer as beautifully aged as this. Largely intact, but heavily crazed, the lacquer coating's time-weathered appearance lends the cabinet a treasured sense of history. An ideal place to display jades, porcelain, and other esteemed scholars' objects, this cabinet likely stood as the centerpiece of a traditional scholars' studio, carefully selected as a source of beauty and creative inspiration.
