Xinjiang Low Pale Blue Sideboard
Xinjiang, circa 1920
This beautifully carved cabinet started life as a much deeper daybed in the far western Chinese province of Xingjiang. It has been reduced in depth and the front panels converted into doors to produce this highly unusal sideboard. With plenty of storage behind the three doors, it is also a good height to use as a stand for a large TV. The ornate relief carvings on the doors, frames and spandrels are in geometric patterns - typical of the furniture produced in Xinjiang. Once brightly coloured, there are still traces of the old, pale blue finish visitble on the front and top surface, but this has now largely worn to show the pale pine wood underneath.
