A beautifully detailed decorated pair of sofa side or bedside cabinets. Each of these reproduction cabinets depicts a traditional Chinese scene based on the styles of the Tang dynasty (618 - 907).
Handmade and finished with a mid-sheen turquoise lacquer, with slight distressing under the perfect clear top coat.
Each of these small cupboards has a single drawer above the cupboard which houses a central removable shelf. Solid brass teardrop tab handles adorn each drawer and door.
Each door pivots on a wooden dowel post, top & bottom, so can be removed easily if required and the drawers slide smoothly on wooden runners.
There is a left opening and a right-hand opening cupboard. The drawer fronts are decorated with black hand-painted bamboo and grasses on a mustard background.
The door fronts each depict scenes in old Chinese houses suggesting the Tang Dynasty era. A woman can be seen feeding a pair of red-crested Chinese cranes; Cranes, or herons, play an important role in Chinese mythology. In Chinese culture, the crane is venerated as the prince of all feathered creatures and has a legendary status. Embodying longevity and peace, it is the second most favoured bird symbol after the Phoenix.
The hand-painting is reds, blues and greys on a mustard background.
Use as bedside storage or to flank a sofa, to introduce charm and province to a room or hallway.
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.
