RARE pair of miniature red lacquered elm wood Chinese scholar's cabinets. Designed as a “mirror image” pair, each cabinet has one side panel which is plain while the opposing side panel is decorated with floral carvings. These decorative cabinets also served a utilitarian purpose for the scholar who would use them to store items such as seals, wrist and brush rests, water droppers, scroll weights, etc. The doors feature subtle gold highlights. The hardware appears to be original and has flowers and some calligraphy engraved on them. In excellent condition, these rare treasures measure 17 inches high, 9.75” across, 5” deep each. Dates circa 1860-1880 Shanxi.
