Oriental Cupboard, Possibly China, 19th Century

About

Wardrobe with four bodies and double height made of carved wood, polychrome and gold, rectangular, slightly raised on legs and topped by a simple molding. The lack of decoration on the sides leaves the prominence that deserves a very worked front: the four panels at the top conceal a double door in the center and show decorative elements (figurative scenes, characters, geometric motifs, etc.) inspired in traditional Chinese art, made in gold on a red or gold background on a dark background; in the center there are three drawers, also decorated in their fronts; the four panels of the lower part have been decorated less than the upper one (maintaining the chromatic combination) and hide a double door in the center of the furniture. In the lower area of the wardrobe, small panels of carved wood have been placed, draped and decorated with meticulousness. The present example is reminiscent of outstanding ancient Chinese works, such as the Guangxu wardrobe by Jiangxi preserved in the Oriental Museum of Valladolid. Measures: 68 x 168 x 184 cms.
