This early 20th century Tibetan painted cabinet would have originally been used atop a kang or platform bed, used as a table and storage chest. The low cabinet has a simple rectangular design with short legs, inset paneled sides, and a slightly overhung top. Each of the front panels is hand-painted with a cartouche of pink and blue peony blossoms set against a golden yellow background. The two center panels slide open to reveal a large interior compartment. The cabinet frame is decorated with red lacquer and a painted trailing vine motif, now faded from years of use.

Deaccessioned from the MacLean Collection of Asian Art.

“Over the years, I’ve incorporated many pieces from PAGODA RED into my designs. Not only can they balance new furnishings (and often new construction) by feeling more established, but the pieces emanate a sense of rich history, often leaving you wondering where they were in a previous life. These beautiful pieces carefully hand-selected by the team at PAGODA RED, coupled with their unbelievable customer service, make them a must-have for any home.”
