Original price was: $1,400.00.Current price is: $1,200.00.

This carved sideboard originated from Fujian province and is approx. 80-100 years old. It is made of Elm wood and Fir wood, and the carved panels in front are made of Camphor wood. This is because Camphor wood is a soft wood without too many knots, which makes it suitable for carving. The carvings on this piece are very, it features mainly magpies & cherry blossoms. As cherry blossoms symbolise spring time, that’s also when the magpies appear, when you see them you know that spring time is here and Chinese New Year is near, so magpies are also known as the bearer of goods news.
The cabinet top is made of a single plank of Ficus wood, which is a distinctive trait of this type of cabinets. The original colour of Fujian pieces are mainly red & gold, or red, black & gold. However, the original colour of this piece was already very damaged and hard to restore, therefore we had this repainted to a distressed light grey colour.
