An early 19th century Chinese wardrobe with black lacquered wood and delicate gilt motifs of water scenes and temples. This tall linear cabinet features three bottom drawers below two large doors, all opening via oval brass pulls. The doors open to reveal two inner shelves and two drawers offering a variety of storage options. This stunning piece is a perfect example of the style that Europeans drew from as the popularity of chinoiserie increased across the continent. Driven by the increased studying of eastern culture and an increase in the importation of pieces such as this tall cabinet, chinoiserie hit its apex of popularity in the mid 19th century when it was dovetailed with the rococo styles of masters such as François Boucher and Thomas Chippendale.

 

Standing on four straight legs supported by a simple apron in the front, this 19th century black lacquered Chinese cabinet with brass hardware would be a stunning addition to any home, perhaps storing china in a dining room or linens in a bedroom.
