Description

This antique Chinese 19th century black lacquered low kang cabinet features a rectangular top over two simple drawers. Each drawer is adorned with brass ring pulls with circular back plates, their curve balancing nicely the linear profile and dark finish of the piece. The cabinet is raised on four block feet.

 

The term kang comes from a platform destined to receive people atop, typically found in Northern China and made of hollow brick, allowing to burn fuel underneath to provide some heat. Furniture around had therefore to be low. Its convenient proportions and aged patina would make this Chinese low kang cabinet from the 19th century a wonderful coffee table.
