This early 20th century Chinese cabinet from Fujian province features finely gilt painted floral doors that depict birds and flowering branches. Each scene is framed in lacquer embedded with chips of mica, a turn-of-the-century technique practiced by artists in Fujian. This type of chest was frequently offered as part of a dowry, given to the groom's family and filled with gifts.
