Chinese lacquered furniture

The application of lacquer to furniture or decorative objects is one which goes back many centuries in China, Japan and Korea. Intricate lacquer application processes developed into an artistic craft during China’s Shang dynasty, with large quantities of lacquerware being made during the Eastern Zhou period.

Over time, the techniques used became increasingly skilled, with new styles developing which made use of decorative features made from high-value materials such as gold, silver and mother of pearl. As such, the Chinese artistic tradition of using lacquer dates back many hundreds of years, and can still be found in pieces made during the present day.

Our ever-changing collection of Chinese antique furniture often includes a number of black lacquered pieces, such as trunks and cabinets. Items are sourced by us directly from China and because each piece is an original and unique item, our current stock does vary according to what we have available at the time.

Antique furniture items are carefully restored for us in China by skilled craftsmen who are experts in using traditional restoration and carpentry techniques. The craftsmen we work with take great care to return items to their original glory without losing any of their original charm, whilst ensuring that unique features such as hand painted designs are protected for the future. Offering the perfect way to bring a touch of oriental history into your home, our Chinese antiques are beautiful, elegant and completely unique.
