Dark Elm Carved Shanxi Cabinet
Shanxi, circa 1870
This stunning mid sized cabinet is from Shanxi province, made from elm wood and still in its original dark finish. The style is typical of certain pieces from the region, with central doors set within rounded frames and surrounded with other smaller panels. The doors and each of the panels are all beautifully decorated with fine relief carvings of flowers. Rounded frames at each corner fit directly into the extended top surface and form the cabinet's feet at the bottom. Inside there is one fixed shelf that incorporates two shallow drawers. Whilst the finish is quite worn, with the paler wood showing through in places, the cabinet is in excellent condition for its age and would make a wonderful addition to any home.
