Antique Chinese Ming Style Armoire Kuang Hsu Period China circa 1875

The clean angular profile of this antique Chinese armoire cabinet from China circa 1875 derives from the beautiful artistry developed during the Ming dynasty (1368–1644). The slender tapered sides and round vertical supports give an overall impression of elegance and restraint. Please notice the beautifully matched panels of Chinese elm that comprise the left and right cabinet doors as the powerful grain moves visually in a sensuous pattern. Centred between the pair of cabinet doors is a circular set of bronze coloured metal hardware embellished with an etched design of clouds and flowers. The pair of shaped metal handles suspended from the circular plates are also etched. Each handle is easily pulled to open a door to reveal the storage space within. Inside this Chinese cabinet is a removable shelf as well as a fixed shelf with a pair of drawers and a very curious base. At the bottom of the interior is a single iron ring which when lifted reveals a concealed storage space. This handsome example of late nineteenth antique Chinese cabinetry possesses a modern and contemporary feel perfect for a twenty first century interior.
