Ming style linen cabinet
- 95cm wide x 52cm deep x 178.5cm high
Fine example of the Ming linen cabinet. Understated elegance was a hallmark of furniture produced during the Ming dynasty (1368 C.E. – 1644 C.E.). Such was its popularity that the design continued right through until modern times. The cabinet tapers gently from a slightly wider base to the peak form top. This design reflects traditional Chinese building techniques that forms a very strong structure to withstand earthquakes.
The full length doors are another feature of classic Ming design.
Cabinets of this quality are very rare.
