This is one of the most extensively carved pieces I have ever seen, every square inch of it is hand carved, there are dragons, floral detailing, Chinese symbols serpent detailing. It really is a tour de force and considered as art furniture. The cabinet comes in three pieces, the base and top are two separate pieces and the very top plinth comes off as well for ease of transport. The base unit has two large cupboards, a kennel section and a single drawer, the top has two large drop front glazed doors which reveal a space which looks to be designed for apothecary type storage, for modern use I imagine it would be ideally suited as a drinks cabinet or for storing dinner services. We have cleaned waxed and polished it from top to bottom, it is well over 100 years old so has a genuine and very desirable age relevant patina.
Height:- base alone 92.5cm, top alone 102cm total 194.5cm. Please note all measurements are taken at the widest point, if you would like any additional or specific measurements please ask.
