Narrow Mongolian Cabinet
Mongolia, circa 1920
This lovely narrow cabinet is made from pine and the frame is finished in a dark brown lacquer with red lacquer top. The door is painted with an image of Chinese figures taking part in a type of ceremony. There is also a carved finial at the top of each leg. The cabinet is from Inner Mongolia - a part of China from which it is now quite rare to find good quality original pieces , particularly with the original paintings like this one.
