Chinese Carved Rosewood Cabinet

About

This cabinet made circa 1950, is of the finest craftsmanship. Done in the traditional Chinese method of interlocking chamfered construction it can be, if desired, completely broken down and refitted together without use of glues or fasteners. All of its component parts are cut or carved from solid rosewood and therefore the piece is very heavy and substantially made. The two pairs of cabinet doors are carved with qilin opposed formation within prunus branches and overlooked by phoenix and other birds set in a rocky outcropping. The polished brass large decorative hinges and handles are pinned in place from the inside and present a rich contrast to the very well patinated wood surface. At the bottom two concealed drawers rest within the framing legs, these are also carved from the solid wood and have further birds in the foliage. The surface of the wood is beautiful and full of dark rich color. Made undoubtedly in mainland China or on the island of Hong Kong this is a fine example of the material and craftsmanship available at the middle of the 20th century. This wood now is virtually unobtainable and difficult to work.
