Grey Lacquer Panelled Sideboard
Gansu, circa 1900
This panelled sideboard comes from Gansu province and has been given a new lease of life with a distressed grey lacquer finish. Originally the door panels would have been fixed with access possible only through a removable panel in the top, now sealed. The door handles are therefore new and removable shelves have been added inside. The original brass fastening plate that sits in the centre of the top frame is still intact, adding a nice feature to the cabinet.
