    Black Lacquer Cabinet From Shanxi - 19th Century

    SKU:C1628

    £2,450

    This dramatic antique Chinese black lacquer cabinet dates to the 19th century & Qing dynasty. It is provincial in style and originally from the border area of Shanxi & Hebei. It is made from Northern elm (yumu). 

    Cabinets like this one have a beautiful simplicity. Its worn black lacquer is worn in places and the main feature is the verdigris brass lock plate and handles. The interior has a large cavity separated by two shelves. 

     

    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. Black, burgundy & red were the primary lacquers used in traditional Chinese furniture. Other colours such as green, blue, yellow and pink were not used and are only found in modern reproductions.
