Elm Wedding Cabinet With Original Red Lacquer from Shanxi Province - (A Rare Example of this quality) -19thC
Lacquer cabinets were often given as wedding gifts - usually in pairs.
The lacquer is a resin made from the sap of the Rhus verniciflua tree. Lacquer has a long history in Chinese furniture and has been used for over 2000 years.
Our antique lacquer cabinets come mostly from Shanxi & Gansu Provinces.
The wood used in these cabinets is mostly elm.
Other colours such as green, blue, yellow and pink were not used and are only found in modern reproductions.
