Two Door Panelled Sideboard
Shanxi, circa 1920
The panelled doors on this old sideboard are common on pieces like this from Shanxi province. Originally used as a storage chest with fixed panels on the front and removable boards on the top to access the inside, the unit has been adapted into a more practical storage cabinet by sealing the top and turning the front panels into doors fitted into the frames on wooden dowels. The sideboard has been refinished in a shiny, blue green lacquer giving a new lease of life to what was once a simple, functional storage chest.
