Old Carved Fujian Sideboard in Distressed White


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 repainted in a distressed white colour.

The carvings on this piece have a floral theme, with flowers carved on the doors and carvings of flower vases between every drawer. There are also carvings of the Buddhist swastika on the drawers and the doors as well.

There are some unevenness on the left side of the cabinet top, and this is due to the natural edges of the solid Ficus plank.

Overall dimensions = L153 x D47 x H90cm. Internal dimensions of each compartment = W50 x D39 x H41.5cm.
