A small red Chinese cabinet from late 18th/early 19th century has delicate roundel paintings of flowers randomly spaced with floating sketches of foliage on its two front doors. Rendered in fine black lines, the paintings have faded and mellowed, retaining only sparse touches of their original gold highlights. A round brass backplate echoes the roundels. Doors swing open on wooden pegs, eliminating the need for hinges, and are secured with a brass rod that slips through fastenings on the backplate. Sides, back and top of the cabinet are black. This piece was brought out of China 15 years ago and is an authentic example of Shaanxi provincial furniture, with its faded paintings against the rich red background giving it great folk art charm. Interior surfaces were refinished in order to make the cabinet useable. The construction is very solid and the entire cabinet is in excellent condition, with age-appropriate wear. Dimensions: height 28 ¼” (71cm), width 24” (61 cm), depth 13 ¾” (35 cm). SEE MORE ITEMS IN OUR COLLECTION AT WWW.SILKROAD1.COM
