Dongbei Decorative Red Lacquer Sideboard
Dongbei, circa 1900
This beautiful red lacquer sideboard is in a style that is distinctive of the Dongbei region in northeast China. Cabinets would be traditionally finished in a rich red lacquer and decorated with paintings of flowers, birds and geometric patterns - usually with gold as the primary colour. The paintings on this sideboard are particularly fine, showing fruit, fluttering butterflies and birds around the pink peonies. The cabinet would originally have been made with just the central doors and fixed panels either side. The panels have been hinged with wooden dowels to all the doors top open up completely for easier access. There is a removable shelf inside and the central post between the doors is also removable. A lovely cabinet with a vibrant colour palette that would make a great accent piece in any room.
