Red Lacquer Cabinet with Carved Apron
Shanxi, circa 1900
This stunning red lacquer cabinet hails from Shanxi province in central China. A very versatile piece which could be used in any room of the house for storage. In an otherwise quite plain, square framed style, the cabinet's bottom apron is beautifully decorated with wonderful open carving, showing a mirrored scrolling leaf design either side of a central Chinese good luck symbol.
