This Antique Asian Buffet cabinet is more unusual that most cabinets. There are 4 drawers across the top, which is fairly typical, but the bottom section layout is different than most. There are no doors on the bottom, but instead there are 3 panels that can be completely removed.
The center panel can be lifted out. Originally there was a locking device behind the brass pull, with the key hole accessible when the center of the pull is lifted up. The key would have move a latch that locked it into the frame above the panel. The locking part of the hardware has been removed and the key hole filled in, so the locking device is no longer functional. The center panel is now secured with a magnetic catch. With the center panel in place, the end panels cannot be removed. Once the center panel is lifted out, the side panels are allowed to slide toward the center slightly and then they panels can be easily lifted out.
The outer panels could easily be converted to hinged doors if someone wanted a more traditional style cabinet. We would be happy to assist in the conversion if that is your preference.
The bottom apron style is very typical of antique cabinets from the Tianjin region.
Other than the removal of the hidden locking mechanism, all the brass hardware appears to be original.
As seen in the photos, much of the lacquer has been worn off from the front and top and some removed from the right side.
