Pair of 19th Century French Faux Bamboo Large Cabinets

About

This exceptional pair of cabinets was made circa 1880 in France and are crafted of pine and made to resemble bamboo. During the late 19th century bamboo an exotic and foreign material was very prized as a symbol of colonial power and world success. The aesthetics movements interest in Japanese products and the influx of these goods into France and England created a style of furniture that is very similar in both countries. This pair made with highly figured wood is then edged in wood turned to imitate bamboo. The upper sections are glazed for display or book storage and contain two shelves creating three separate sections while the lower section houses closed doors with a shelf. The cabinet sections are separated by a flat surface that is unenclosed as the upper cabinets step back from the larger lower section. The lower section contains two drawers as well above the doors. The doors are finished in faux bamboo diamonds set onto the surface of the door within the out frame. Both cabinets retain the original finish and surface and both cabinets are painted white inside the glazed section setting off whatever is displayed there. It is unusual to find these in pairs and in original finish.
