A very large and beautiful elm cabinet Shanxi c.1770 once used in a temple in the central Chinese province of Shanxi. This cabinet is at least 200 years old. It has wonderful intricate carving on the panels above the four doors and sits on carved front feet. The four doors are panelled, set within rounded frames and mounted into the cabinet on wooden dowels. The cabinet is still in its original lacquer finish. This would once have been a more vibrant red, but has worn and faded over the years to a more subtle reddish brown with a wonderful crackled patina. This is a rare and unusual piece with impressive proportions 160 wide x 182 high x 60 deep.
