This late Qing Dynasty grain chest from Shaanxi Province in China has a softly faded painting on its front doors of two turtle doves in front of lotus blossoms, Chinese emblem of purity and perfection. The birds and flowers are in a large roundel encircled with loose scrolling. Made of poplar wood using Chinese mortise and tenon construction, the piece is solid and strong, built to hold quite a bit of weight. The removable doors swing open on wood pegs that ride in grooves on the top and bottom of the frame. This late 19th century cabinet has great charm and is in very good condition. Dimensions: height 30 ½” (77.5 cm), width 42 ½” (108 cm), depth 19” (48.3 cm).
