Red and Gold Dongbei Sideboard
Dongbei, circa 1920
This decorative red lacquer sideboard is from the Dongbei region of northern China and is in a style that is particular to that area. Finished in a deep red, the doors, surrounding frames and bottom apron are all beautifully painted in gold with rectangular geometric patterns that include details of flowers inside. Originally the cabinet would have had only the two central doors fitted, with a fixed panel either side. These panels have been converted into additional doors to make the interior space more easily accessible. With a new, clear varnish added to lift the old colour, this is a lovely, vibrant cabinet that would add warmth and colour to any living space.
