Antique Chinese heavily carved wedding cabinet LE-007

An exquisite antique four-door heavily carved Chinese wedding cabinet.  The piece-de-resistance at Zitan. Rescued from the Cultural Revolution in China it had been wrapped and buried in a field to prevent its destruction.during this time. It had been a very precious piece to the owners who risked a lot to preserve it.

It has very deep carving at least one inch deep, with beautiful workmanship which is a sign of the very high value of this piece.

The whole item is completely perfect and the intricate carving which, despite its age, is un-ravaged by time.

This particular cabinet would have been owned by a very wealthy family and it's extremely rare to find this quality in such superb condition.

Originating from the town of Dongwang in Zhekjiang Province, this piece dates from the mid-to-late 19th Century and is made from mulberry and camphor woods.

Originally cabinets like this would have been used to store clothing and would have been presented to the couple full of silks and brocades like our trousseaubut is equally useful as a display cabinet for ceramics or bowls.

Many people are concerned about the dust trap that such deep carving can create but, as always, the clever Chinese have the answer - one quick flick with a feather duster removes all the dust in an instant.
