CLEARANCE SALE: Vintage Carved Fujian Sideboard in Natural Wood Colour
This carved sideboard originated from Fujian province, which is at the southeastern part of China, 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 cabinet top is made of a single plank of Ficus wood, this 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 stripped to its natural wood colour, and for this particular piece the carvings stood out really well after this treatment. The carvings on this piece are beautiful; the geometric patterns on the drawers & doors are the Buddhist swastika, and the carvings on the doors features bats (good blessings) and flowers & fruits in bowls & vases, standing on display stands.
