Small Butterfly Cabinet, Cream Lacquer
This cream lacquer cabinet is beautifully made with traditional wooden peg hinges and a single drawer at the top. These pretty little bedside cabinets are decorated with gold leaf and painted by hand so each one is unique. The colourful butterflies on the doors are framed on the outside with flowers in gold, red and green. The butterfly is a symbol of happiness in a marriage for the Chinese and as such is often seen on painted Chinese cabinets and chests that were made to be given as part of a wedding settlement. Also available in black lacquer or red lacquer. Other colours can be made to order.
