A striking sideboard that's made from pine wood, this Black Painted Sideboard is a real beauty. Made from the Qinghai province of China back in the 1880s, this wonderful item carries plenty of history as shows in the scars and scrapes it has garnered in over 100 years.

The cabinet features two doors at the front flanked by two fixed panels. Most pieces like this would have the fixed panels converted into doors so this one has retained its original design which is a refreshing site to see on a vintage piece.

Cabinets like these were once decorated with vibrant paintings and so it's no surprise that this one had paintings as well. Although its all worn away in most areas, you can still see traces of it in the front outer panels. These were mostly made up of flowers and butterflies which was symbolic for the Chinese.

The only new additions to this cabinet are the brass handles. The rest are all original pieces.
