Made in the 1850s in the Shanxi province of China, this Carved Tapered Cabinet echoes popular furniture back in the day. It is decorated with lovely carvings that are lovely to look at and examine.

Purely made from wood, it comes with a solid base including four feet. There are two main door panels at the front with hand carved images of animals. Even the drawers are carved as well. The left portion showcase animals in the Zodiac which showcase devotion and endurance. On the right is an image of a deer, which represents long life.

At the front portion of the doors, you will find a carving of the unicorn or a 'kylin' which was a mythical beast that had scales and the head of the dragon. This was popular in folklore because it symbolised prosperity.

You will love this wonderful little piece. Place it inside your bedroom or use it as the main focal point of your living room space. It's quite a beauty.
