A traditionally restored otter grey lacquered Chinese antique sideboard which dates back to c.1920 when it was handmade in the Chinese province of Gansu.
The three cupboards each house a removable shelf and the ochre lacquered door panels are decorated with scenes of hand-painted Chinese mountains, which are so important in Oriental culture and often featured in Chienese decoration. 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 caligraphy character for 'mountain' comprises three peaks.
The decorateive panels under each cupboard feature oriental fauna including almond blossom and bamboo. This is a beautiful asian cabinet, lacquered in gentle tones which will blend easily in to most colour schemes but bring masses of personality to an interior.
Each door closes securely with a gentle magnet and slides out of its housing easily if necessary.
Use me for a statement storage piece for an entrance hall, dining room or living room. Also this would make a striking long drinks cabinet.
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.
