Old Zhejiang Kitchen Cabinet

Original price was: $1,800.00.Current price is: $1,650.00.

This kitchen cabinet originated from Zhejiang province, and is approx. 100 years old. It has beautiful original colour, patina and proportions. The pivot hinges on the upper doors are held by nice large “pumpkins”, and the lattice doors below are double height, which is more unusual.

Internally, the shelf is shown being placed towards the top, this gives a height of 42cm below and 12cm on top, with another 10cm height “hidden” on the inside at the top. The shelf can also be moved to a lower position where the heights are 29cm & 25cm for the top & bottom respectively.

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 rows of 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.

Dimensions: L106 x D47.5 x H179cm.
