19th Century Chinese Lacquered Scholar's Shelf

About

Just 150 years ago this elegant case would have been one of the centrepieces in the studio of a Chinese scholar. The open shelves would have made it ideal for storing books, scrolls, precious antiques, calligraphy brushes, and other writing materials. At the time, displaying objects in appealing ways was a priority and the configuration of this open cabinet accommodated arrangements beautifully. Each compartment is thoughtfully finished in a red quadrilobed design. The red and black lacquer finish is original and has aged gracefully over time.
