Small Butterfly Cabinet, Red Lacquer
The colourful butterflies on the doors of our red lacquer cabinet 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. These pretty little bedside cabinets are decorated with gold leaf and painted by hand. These ones are beautifully made with traditional wooden peg hinges and a single drawer at the top. Also available in black lacquer or cream lacquer. Other colours can be made to order.
