This fabulous one-off restored Chinese vintage sideboard is a wonderful find. Dating back to the early 1900s, this long solid wood, hand-made cabinet is decorated on each door with traditional oriental landscapes, so often found on Chinese antique decorated furniture.
Mountains and water are central to the Daoist conception of the world and no classical Chinese landscape would be complete wtihout either. Many mountains in China are sacred and the caliigraphy character for 'mountain' comprises three peaks.
Each of the three single cupboards houses a removable shelf and each door bears an elegant solid brass tab handle. The frame has traces of jade green lacquer under the rich and glossy clear top coat. Each door closes securely with a gentle magnet, fitted on traditional wooden dowels, each door easily slides out of its housing if necessary.
Use as a statement cabinet in an entrance hall, a long dining room sideboard or drinks cabinet. This unqiue restored Chinese antique is classically beautiful; a timeless piece which will add provenance and charm to virtually any interior style.
Chinese lacquer is generally easy to care for. A soft duster will remove fingerprints, a silicone furniture cleaning spray will restore the lustre and spills can be removed with a soft, slightly damp cloth.
There is a risk of wood splitting, discolouring or warping if placed directly next to a heat source (including under floor heating) or in sunlight.
