It's very unusual to find an early 20th century cabinet made of bamboo like this one. Each of the chest's panels is created with miniature cracked ice lattice, or "binglei," a popular 17th century Chinese decorative motif admired for its asymmetry. Creating furniture from bamboo was a traditional Chinese art form in itself, requiring carpenters with very specific skills, talents, and training.
