Gansu, circa 1850
This lovely narrow side cabinet has been made by cutting down an old grain chest from Gansu province in western China. The thick red and black lacquer frames in pine are typical of the style of furniture from the eastern part of the province. The monochrome paintings on the upper drawer and single door are original and are set against a paler lacquer. The main painting shows a mountain landscape, whilst the narrow drawer above shows bamboo branches. The simple handles are new. The cabinet has a single shelf inside.
