Red Wedding Cabinet with Gold Landscapes
Shanxi, circa 1850
Though worn, the 'miao jin' gilt paintings that decorate this cabinet are particularly detailed, showing landscapes and pagoda roofs on traditional Chinese homes. It is unusual to find original paintings like this as they will often be completely worn or retouched. Though the gold has degraded in several areas to show the black base underneath, the overall effect here is still beautiful. The lower panel and cabinet frames are also decorated with gold in a floral pattern.
The hardware is newly added - a replacement for the original door plates and handles lost or destroyed over time. The two removable shelves and removable board that covers the bottom 'hidden' compartment are also new. A truly stunning wedding cabinet that would be a real statement piece in any room.
