Stunning antique Chinese lacquered furniture to enhance your home

From antique lacquered wedding cabinets and sideboards, through to armoires, apothecary chests and storage trunks, you’ll find that our collection includes a wealth of beautiful original pieces.

Many of our antique furniture pieces are finished in lacquer which gives an ornate and luxurious look. Lacquer has been used in Chinese furniture making for many hundreds of years. The glossy finish of lacquered furniture is achieved by applying multiple layers of lacquer sap to the wood underneath. You’ll find that many of our antiques have retained their original lacquer finish and although it may have faded and slightly crackled, this only adds to the wonderful patina and unique charm. Although antique items are restored for us by skilled craftsmen in China, the craftsmen we work with are highly experienced in using traditional techniques to ensure that the integrity and originality of each item is retained. Our range of antique Chinese lacquered furniture is available for UK-wide direct delivery or can be shipped overseas.
