Kitchen Cabinet

$1,650.00

This kitchen cabinet originated from Zhejiang province, and is approx. 100 years old. It has beautiful original colour & patina and its brass door handles are original too.

The small carvings across the bottom of the top doors are very well done & delicate, they are (from L-R): cherry blossom, orchid, bamboo & chrysanthemum, symbolizing the four seasons. The vertical slats just above them have a pointed profile and slightly concave edges, a nice & subtle detail.

All the doors are slatted to allow air circulation, and gauze was stuck on the inside of the doors to prevent flies from touching the food. The 2 bottom shelves have sliding doors and slatted shelves to store “wet” items so that the moisture can drip down; some believed live poultry was kept in those bottom compartments. There was a repair done on the top of the middle doors, and then overall this was finished with a clear matte lacquer.

Dimensions: L110 x D54 x H176cm
