Open display cabinets were often seen in the scholar’s studio holding favourite pieces from their personal collection, perhaps a jade carving or antique porcelain. The items would change regularly to the delight of friends.

This tall narrow antique display cabinet will fill the corner of the room that has always needed “something” or add character to the guest bedroom. It has an open carved apron of plum blossoms and the base has relief carving of a peach flower. The plum red lacquer adds a deep soft lustre enticing you to caress the cabinet.
