Decent condition

Cabinet with drawers opening with two doors and several inside drawers.

Decorated with gold lacquer on black background, intertwined motifs embellished with flowers and insects. Coloured bone and mother-of-pearl inlays complete this decoration.
Inside of the drawers in red lacquer and golden flowers.
Painted inscription under the 4 drawers. These inscriptions on the underside of the drawers apparently correspond to the name of a former owner.
All metal hinges are in golden bronze, very finely engraved.

China, early 18th century.

Good overall condition. Some cracks, including a more significant one on top and lifted lacquer visible on the photos. Some missing inlays. Several screws of the metal hinges have been changed.

Measurements: 41.5 x 41.5 cm
Height: 25 cm
Weight: 7.7 kg
Secure shipping

  • I have made several purchases on CataWiki but have never received an item so quickly! On top of that, the piece is even more beautiful than the photos. This was a five star transaction.
