Chinese Cabinet
Chinese Cabinet
Antique replica magic Chinese cabinet in solid Walnut with turned Ebony handles carved with 'ying and yang' symbols. The carcase construction was hand dovetailed across 22 inches showing the dovetailing as a feature, drawers were hand dovetailed also. All the dimensions are multiples of three inches hence the wonderful proportions and the magic connection. The overall height and breadth are seven foot respectively with seven steps, seven being another important number in Chinese and other cultures. This cabinet containing cupboards and drawers offers an amazing amount of storage options, it also separates into three sections which can work as stand alone pieces in their own right. This cabinet was made from one photograph supplied with historical background by a private collector. French polished by hand to a finish.
