Chinese Tongzhi Altar Cabinet


An ornate South China altar cabinet of the Tongzhi period. Pierce-carved jabots and a frieze panel decorate the trestle structure; usually open, yet in this case enclosed by side and back panels, and fronted by two drawers over two doors. The original period brasses are age-patinated, as are the pierce-carved panels. The actual table or serving height is 36 1/2" without its wings; if repurposed as a server, sideboard, or liquor cabinet.
