Dongbei Red Lacquer Sideboard
Dongbei, circa 1900
This very striking sideboard originates from the northeast Chinese region of Dongbei and is in a style that is particular to the area. The vivid red lacquer is beautifully decorated in gold with depictions of birds and flowers on the doors, with a geometric pattern on the surrounding frames. The red and gold on the front contrasts with the plainer, dark wood finish of the top surface and sides. Originally only the central doors would have been in place, but here the panels either side have been converted into additional doors for added practicality. The paintings and decorative elements are some of the nicest we have seen on a Dongbei cabinet and this would add a lovely, vibrant splash of colour and interest to any room.
