Pink Lacquer Side Cabinet
Gansu, circa 1880
This pretty little side cabinet would work beautifully as a bedside table, with space inside for storage. It is from Gansu in western China, made from pine wood. The style is simple, the doors mounted directly into the cabinet frames below an extended top. The pink lacquer is not original, but has been applied over the original worn finish. The little ring handles are also new. The side and rear panels and top surface are in a dark wood stain. The cabinet has a single removable shelf inside.
