Description

A pair of tall Chinese Qing Dynasty period compound cabinets from the 19th century made of elm wood and adorned with brass hardware. Created in China during the Qing Dynasty period in the 19th century, each of this pair of large compound wardrobes features a small upper cabinet presenting a set of double doors. The lower section, of higher proportions, is made of two doors fitted with a brass medallion echoed from the top accented with pierced knobs and teardrop pulls. These doors open to reveal inner shelves and hidden drawers offering convenient storage opportunities. The lower section presents four drawers each fitted with a C-scroll handle.


Compound cabinets were used for storage. The top would contain out of season clothing while the main cabinet would be used as a wardrobe for everyday use including bedding and clothes for the season. Th ensemble is raised on four straight legs accented with a carved apron on three sides. With their clean lines and tall proportions, this pair of Chinese Qing Dynasty period compound cabinets from the 19th century will bring a touch of elegance to any home, particularly placed in a bedroom or a living room. The price to re-lacquer the pair would be $1,500.
