Subject:Chinese cabinet
Posted By: Krista Wed, May 17, 2023 IP: 2607:ea00:107:807:80

Hi! I recently bought this cabinet, some things about it make me think it’s pretty old, like the construction (dovetails, what appear to be wooden joins), and other things make me wonder: patina, wear patterns, the fact that the sides and back are thin. The drawers are lettered with western alphabetical characters on the back of the handles and on the drawer slots. There is a jian ding seal on the back but it’s not red. Does anyone have any info or thoughts about this cabinet? I feel like it’s old but I don’t know how old, or I may have gotten fooled!? | Associations | Articles | Exhibitions | Galleries |
