This beautiful black lacquer cabinet is actually 2 separate pieces stacked on top of each other.
The lower base section has 2 single raised panel doors. The main section of each raised panel is a large flat area with a detailed relief carved flower in each corner. The flower is painted gold, as is a fine line around the perimeter of the panel. The center of each door panel has gold painted designs of many typical Chinese symbols, including vases with flowers, brush pots, fruit & books. The molded edge of the frame of the door also has a double gold painted line.
Inside the base section is a single shelf in the center and a pair of drawers at the top.
The feet of the base are carved in the horse hoof pattern. There is a small split apron inside each leg.
The upper section also has 2 doors that are done in the same style as the doors on the base. The main difference is the center paintings are of beautiful landscape scenes. Inside the upper section are 5 fixed shelves with a nice beaded detail on the front edges. There is also a pair of drawers on the bottom.
The hardware appears to be original to the piece with the exception of the keeper pins.
This is a beautiful piece but it does have a few things that would benefit from some attention. As can be seen in the photos there are some shrinkage cracks on the upper doors as well as in a few areas on the cases. The black lacquer has some wear, mostly in the areas where the upper and lower cabinet meet. Also, as I try to show in the photo of the cabinet on an angle with the doors slightly open, there is some warping in the doors. This cabinet is priced taking these flaws into consideration and is being sold as is.
