Early 20th Century Chinese Painted Qilin Sideboard

About

The paintings on this 19th century coffer from Mongolia are original and in impeccable condition. The hand-painted scene is fantastical—two traditionally dressed female figures are riding mythical Qilin lion dogs. The women are holding pomegranates symbolizing fertility and ruyi scepters for good luck. A coffer like this was generally commissioned as part of a woman’s dowry and later used as the family altar on which offerings of food and incense would be placed to honour family ancestors. Additional Dimensions: Top shelf 15.5" W x 14.75" D x 12.5" H Bottom shelf 15.75" W x 14" D x 11" H Opening 20.5" W x 21" H.
