Antique Chinese Red Lacquer Cabinet China circa 1900

A beautiful antique Chinese red lacquer cabinet having two drawers above two cabinet doors adorned with bronze hardware flanked by a carved and pierced shaped wing on the left and right from China circa 1900 depicting birds standing amidst blossoms. The colour red has always denoted good fortune and joy in China. Please look carefully at the open work carving as both sides depict a rocky outcropping with flowering branches and two birds. The flowering branches are traditional prunus (known as flowering plum) that has been eternally beloved for centuries as a sign of hope and perseverance as the tree blooms while there is still snow on the ground. The potent colour and interesting form of the cabinet that includes a raised and scrolled element at the left and right end of the top serving surface give this piece a highly sculptural effect. The cabinet was designed to not only bring auspicious tidings to a household but also to afford substantail storage space. The doors and drawers retain their original bronzed metal hinges and pulls and the subtle gleam of the metal against the lush red colour of the lacquer add to the appeal of this cabinet.
