Antique Chinese Display Cabinet with Hand Painted Chinoiserie and Open Shelf



Chinese 19th century antique display cabinet with hand painted chinoiserie scene, open shelf, two doors and carved accents. Born in China in the 19th century, this exquisite display cabinet features an open shelf in its upper section, accented with three openings with carved motifs in its front. The black hue of the inner section contrasts beautifully with the red undertone of the outer structure and the exterior of the open shelf has been partially stripped of its original black lacquer. The lower part of the cabinet attracts our attention with its hand painted chinoiserie scene, presenting characters set among traditional structures. The lighter tones of the hand painted scenes, highlighted with orange accents, stand out beautifully on the dark brown color of the cabinet. Fitted with brass hardware, the doors open to reveal two inner shelves offering great storage opportunities. Creating a perfect visual harmony, the carving of the top is developed at the bottom on the lower frieze. With its clean lines, its delicate decor and its lovely patina, this Chinese 19th century display cabinet will bring an exotic touch to any living room.
