Hand Painted Chinoiserie Cabinet or Console

Chinese, 1940s

Hand Painted Chinoiserie Cabinet with two symmetrical latching cabinets, each with a single fixed position (removable) shelf. Black lacquer finis, brass drop pulls, hinges, and brass capped legs; detailed hand painted floral decorations in vibrant colors edged in gold. It's gorgeous! The backgrounds of the leaves and flowers are smoothly blended in emerald green, coral, and pink; the top of the cabinet is finished off with a gorgeous blue jay. The back of the cabinet is also finished in solid black, so this cabinet could float in a room.


Use as a console table (with storage!)- in an entryway- as a unique bath storage piece. No maker's marks remain. Relatively lightweight piece. 


CONDITION NOTES: Perfectly wabi-sabi. It has marks but due to the fabulous decoration and black background field, they aren't noticeable. Cabinet has some larger chips to the base of cabinet (painted over in black); and at the top left of the cabinet. Various nicks, marks, and age appropriate wear to lacquered surfaces; black lacquer finishes also have various even nicks, marks, and age appropriate wear. Structurally sound.
