Antique Elm Storage Cabinet
Shanxi, circa 1890
This antique cabinet boasts a uniquely patterned surface due to its original dark finish wearing away in an irregular manner. Crafted in Shanxi province in central China, it is made from elm wood, with a square framed, robustly constructed style. The cabinet was designed to be used as a secure storage coffer, featuring two shallow drawers with small, centrally placed doors. Although the drawer handles are replacements, the heavy door hinges and small, circular escutcheons are original.
The cabinet offers a traditional, timeless look that can match any decor, with a unique, classic charm due to its natural patina. With a single removable shelf inside, it would be perfect for storage in a living area or reception room.
