A Chinese red lacquered armoire with noodle top from the 1800s. This Chinese 19th century tapered armoire showcases a rectangular shape adorned by round edges and a noodle top overhanging on the front and sides. The tall armoire is covered with a bright red lacquer showing a slight black patina, a common element in the Chinese black and red lacquer tradition. The two doors open thanks to a traditional Chinese shaped hardware, with handles evoking an antique Chinese bronze vessel.
