Dongbei Painted Antique Sideboard
Dongbei, circa 1890
This style of cabinet is particular to the Dongbei region in the northeast of China. Finished in the original deep red lacquer on the front and a dark wood stain on the top and sides it is beautifully decorated with flowers and geometric patterns. When it was made it would have been fitted with just two central doors, with fixed panels at either side. These have been adapted to add extra doors, making the inside more easily accessible. The post between the central doors is removable. With its gorgeous, aged red and gold colours, the cabinet is perfect as a dining room buffet or for general purpose storage in a bedroom or living room.
