1 item left

Tianjin sideboards come from the port city of Tianjin & surrounding areas in North China. The simple design originated during the Ming dynasty.
Our pieces are mostly 19th century & early 20th century
They were usually made from elm, oak or catalpa and occasionally in camphorwood.
The fittings are made from brass and are mostly circular in form, but occasionally rectangular.
These cabinets were used for storage & also as altar cabinets for family ancestor worship. The door panels on this sideboard are made from Burr Elm which is highly prized timber and therefore more expensive - 19thC
